Vigil held in memory of 3 lives lost in weekend vehicle fire on Rt. 391 in Chicopee
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) - A grieving community has come together to honor the three individuals killed in a car fire over the weekend.
Monday evening’s vigil in Springfield honors the three victims of a deadly car fire on Route 391 early Sunday morning.
When Massachusetts State Police troopers arrived on scene shortly after 3 a.m. Sunday morning, they found the car engulfed in flames. First responders and bystanders were able to free the 24-year-old driver, Jonathan Santigago, who later died from his injuries at Baystate Medical Center.
The other two victims, 23-year-old Karylee Lopez Moret of Springfield and 25-year-old Angel Gabriel Rasado Colon of Holyoke, died at the scene.
Now, their loved ones came together for a candlelit vigil to mourn their loss and honor their memory.
Coming up later Monday night on Western Mass News, we will hear more from those in attendance.
