A prayer circle was held at Whiteland Community H.S. on Wed. morning, one day after three teenage students were involved in a car crash.

The boy, who has received an outpouring of support on social media through the Twitter feed #FightBigMike, is listed in critical condition.

The two girls, who are sisters, are listed in good condition.

Hospital officials, citing privacy laws, could not release any more information about the patients.

FOX59 is not reporting the teenagers’ full names because they are minors.

A prayer circle took place Wednesday morning at the school.  The principal told FOX59 News that crisis management and grief counseling would be made available to any student interested in the services.

As far as the crash itself is concerned, the New Whiteland Police Department is in charge of the investigation and has not yet responded to messages left by FOX59 News.
