About 1,000 people gathered on Harwood Union High School’s soccer field Monday evening for a vigil to remember five students killed by a wrong way driver on Interstate 89 this past weekend. The governor of Vermont was one of mourners.

The man accused of driving the wrong way on a Vermont interstate, crashing into a car and killing five high school students is facing a domestic assault charge.

The boys and girls soccer teams from the Vermont high school that lost four of the five students killed when their car was hit by a wrong-way driver over the weekend decided to hold informal practices Monday.
