Friends, family and teachers remembering Ohio teen killed in Lexington crash

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Friends, family and teachers are remembering an Ohio teen, who died Sunday from her injuries sustained in a Saturday crash on I-75 in Lexington.

The Fayette County Coroner says Brianna Moore, 15, of Englewood, Ohio, died Sunday, a day after the pileup near the northern split. Friends say she and her family was headed home from a wedding at the time.

"I just can't believe I'm not going to get to see her here at Northmont. That's unacceptable," said Sandy Saul, Brianna's former math teacher.

Saul said Brianna was the type of student that made things easier.

"Brianna was the kind of student who could be sad but still smile. Just a person with so much soul," said Saul.

While she was just a teen, Brianna is described as the type of young woman who lived her life in a bigger way.

"Outstanding, but not in a bold way, but in a quiet, subtle way that made a big statement," continue Saul.

Friends say Brianna's family stopped on the shoulder of I-75 in Lexington to help check on another driver who had an accident. That's when police say a truck swerved into the car where Moore was.

"I can't believe this is real, I don't how to deal with this," said Brianna's friend, Haley Cooper.

"That phone call or when they tell you, it's your worst day. I don't understand and I'll never understand. They're your kids. I think you live through at least some small fraction of what the parents are going through because you can't imagine," said Saul.

Tuesday night, friends gathered to remember the teen, who will leave a big hole in the hearts of many.

A visitation for Moore will take place this Thursday, June 27th. Her funeral will follow on Friday morning in her hometown of Englewood, Ohio.
