Vigil held for South Jersey crash victim
LINWOOD (AP) — More than 1,000 people attended a memorial service for a teenage soccer player who died from injuries sustained a weekend car crash in South Jersey.
Fourteen-year-old Aisling Cooke of Linwood died Wednesday.
Cooke and four other Mainland Regional High School students were going to compete in a charity tournament when the crash occurred Saturday morning in Hamilton Township. The other girls were treated and released from a hospital.
The Press of Atlantic City reports her number will be retired for four years.
Authorities have said a pickup truck apparently crossed the center lane, hit a box truck and then the car carrying the teens.
The crash remains under investigation and no summonses have been issued.
