Funeral services held for Shelby County teen killed in a crash

Friends and family say goodbye to a teenager killed in a car crash just days before her graduation.

Funeral services for Samantha Mathus Cooper were held this Saturday afternoon in Shelby County.

Mathus Cooper was honored last night at Shelby County High School's graduation, with a moment of silence.

Graduates wore ribbons with her initials to the ceremony.

The 18-year old died Tuesday night when a car she was riding in spun out of control and hit a fence.

Three other teens in the car at the time survived the crash.
