Grief counselors at school where 17-year-old killed in crash attended

Grief counselors are on hand at a central Kentucky high school Monday, following a student's death over the weekend.

17-year-old Trista Shoemaker died Saturday afternoon, after investigators say an SUV ran a red light along U.S. 127 in Franklin County and hit her car.

Shoemaker was a member of the volleyball team at Western Hills High School, where she attended.

"It's been difficult," Western Hills Principal Rita Rector said. "She's a junior so she's made a lot of connections with students and faculty."

The Franklin County Sheriff says no charges have been filed because of the crash, but the case is still under investigation.
