Friday evening, a tractor-trailer on I-35 crossed traffic lanes and struck the North Central Texas College bus traveling home from their scrimmage. Four women on the NCTC softball team tragically passed away in the accident.
“The collegiate softball community is very small,” junior Erin Begle said. “Everyone knows someone who knows someone on every team, and the connections never end. Coach Krysiak initiated this vigil service for the NCTC team because we can all imagine how devastating an accident like this would be for our own teams and offering prayers for peace was the most powerful thing we could do.”
