Candlelight vigil in Wausau tonight for crash victims

WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A candlelight vigil will be held in downtown Wausau tonight to remember those killed and injured in an S-U-V crash on Friday.

Two children died -- the latest on Saturday. Eight others were hurt when their large sport vehicle rolled over on Highway 52, about 12 miles northeast of Wausau.

A survivor's relative said the group was heading to the Eau Claire Dells County Park for a picnic and swimming. Broadcast reports said only one victim remained hospitalized as of last night. The other seven survivors were treated at hospitals and released during the weekend.

The victims have been identified as 12-year-old Reighlee Stevenson of Oshkosh, and 12-year-old Deserae Landowski of Wausau.

The victims' friends and relatives have been visiting the crash site throughout the weekend, along with Good Samaritans who stopped to help right after the mishap.
