A candlelight vigil will be held Friday at 7 p.m. at the skate park to honor Michael Higley who passed away from injuries sustained in a crash in Sardine Canyon on Feb. 1. The Tremonton 17-year old’s friend and passenger Robert Watson, 17, of Garland, remains in Intensive Care at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray.
High school friends of Higley have planned the vigil and will be providing green candles to anyone who is interested in coming. Green was Higley’s favorite color, according to school guidance counselor Linda Kuwana, and the skating park was one of his favorite places.
Lt. Lee Perry, UHP, said that his office was notified of Higley’s death Thursday morning. Higley is the second person to pass away as a result of the crash, as 54-year old Robert Smith, of Wellsville, died at the time of the accident, which affected four cars
