CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Chambersburg Area Senior High School student killed Wednesday afternoon in an auto accident was remembered for her enthusiasm by a teacher and was called an "all-around nice kid" by an assistant principal.
"Her face was always adorned with a smile. She enjoyed animals," Eddie Parsons, Jessica Wenger's agriculture teacher for the past three years, wrote in an e-mail.
"She was an excellent worker and loved the hands-on activities in the agriculture department," Parsons wrote.
Wenger, 18, of Chambersburg, was killed in a 3:54 p.m. accident in the 2200 block of Path Valley Road north of Fort Loudon, Pa., according to Pennsylvania State Police. Franklin County Coroner Jeffrey R. Conner said the cause of death was multiple blunt force trauma.
Police said Wenger was a passenger in a 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier driven by Rachelle Marie Poper, 19, of Chambersburg. Poper lost control of the car on a curve, crossed the road, and the car rolled onto its side before hitting a tree, police said.
