MEIGS COUNTY, Tenn. (WDEF) – In a pavilion in Decatur, Meigs County community members turned to each other and their faith during a prayer vigil Wednesday night.
“It was, it was devastating just hearing about that especially in our community and our driver and our students as well and just hearing about the two deaths that we did have. It’s devastating,” Michael Stewart said.
The vigil came a day after a deadly crash involving a Meigs County school bus.
The event was organized by Watts Bar Church.
“We’re just hosting a time of prayer to lift up our families, lift up these families and come together as a community where it’s not about anything else, just making sure that we are here for you,” Watts Bar Church Pastor Kelly Goins said.
People held candles while there was prayer for healing and peace.
The crash killed the school bus driver, young student and injured others.
