The students have been identified as Hamilton Heights High School teacher Kahlen Hart and her high school graduation gang Landon Bayram, a cathedral high school student, according to reports.

“Grief is personal and everyone experiences and handles losses and injuries differently,” HHSC said.
Alcohol and drugs are not thought to have been a factor, investigators told WTHR in Indianapolis. The cause of the crash is still being investigated.
Hart’s mother, Jody Bartrom Conaway, shared a fundraiser on Facebook, asking for $ 15,000 to cover funeral and funeral expenses.
