Best friends Nicole Rodriguez, 20 and Samantha Belliveau, 18 were ejected from the Volkswagon GTS driven by Luis Delcid-Cardona, 19, of Hamilton when he lost control of the car just past the Route 1 interchange on the southbound side, slid across the road, over a divider and into a tractor trailer parked along the entrance ramp. Jonathan Rivas, 19, of Princeton was taken from the scene and died from his injuries at Capital Health Regional Medical Center.

Friends have organized a candlelight vigil for Friday night at 8 p.m according to a Facebook page promoting the event. Attendees are asked to bring flowers, candles and pictures. Shirts will also be sold with the proceeds going to “a drunk driving awareness association.”

Belliveau worked at the Texas Roadhouse restaurant in Hamilton where roses and her picture were left on each table she would have worked on Thursday night. “She liked lit up the entire room every time she walked in,” co-worker Alexa Alias told CBS Philadelphia. Her nickname was “Little Sam” with co-workers who called her everyone’s “little sister.”

The driver of the vehicle, Luis Delcid-Cardona,19 from Hamilton, is being held on $1 million bail at Capital Health on two counts of vehicular homicide, one count of assault by auto, leaving the scene of an accident, and driving while intoxicated. The Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office is likely to upgrade the charges.
