Grief counselors were on hand for students and staff at Richland Center High School on Monday, following the deaths of two students Saturday afternoon in a crash.
Brooklyn Lindvig, a 17-year-old junior, and sophomore MaKenzie Foust, 16, were killed in the crash, and junior Jacob Logterman was injured.
The crash happened shortly before 3 p.m. about four miles northwest of Richland Center on Highway A in the town of Dayton, the Sheriff’s Office said. Deputies found the car overturned in a ditch.
“It is with deep sadness that we need to inform you about an unfortunate event affecting our school community,” the district said in a Facebook post Sunday.

The Sheriff’s Office said no alcohol or drugs were involved in the crash.
Funeral services for Foust are on Wednesday at Pratt Memorial Chapel in Richland Center, and funeral services for Lindvig are on Sunday, also at Pratt Memorial Chapel.
