MERCERSBURG, Pa. - A crisis team will be available to James Buchanan High School students who lost a 16-year-old classmate in an accident after classes dismissed Friday.
Emma-Lee R. Abrell of 8511 Fort Loudon Road was pronounced dead at 6:40 p.m. at the scene of a single-vehicle accident in the 10090 block of Shimpstown Road, Franklin County (Pa.) Coroner Jeffrey R. Conner said.
Emma-Lee had been in a Franklin County Career and Technology Center program that was canceled, Tuscarora School District Superintendent Thomas Stapleford said. Emma-Lee transferred back to the high school as a junior and was working on entering another program at the career center, he said.
