Classmates Mourn The Loss Of Edmond Teen Killed In Crash
EDMOND, Oklahoma - A 16-year-old Edmond North student died Monday night in a fatal motorcycle accident.
Loreane Ingram was thrown from the motorcycle she was riding and hit by another car around 8:30 Monday night.
Students and faculty coped Tuesday with the sudden and tragic loss of one of their fellow Huskies.
The district brought in extra counselors to help with those grieving Tuesday.
“They were pretty upset about it. There was [sic] a few people that know her personally. A few of them broke down," said classmate Jesse Rhodes.
Too distraught to play, fellow orchestra member Jesse Rhodes told News 9 the director gave the students the day off from playing.
"He was just saying how basically we just lost one of our members, one of our orchestra members, and was really upset about it," said Rhodes.
Loreane Ingram was a sophomore violinist in the Edmond North orchestra.
Ingram was riding on the back of a motorcycle headed east on 2nd Street Monday night when a car attempted to make a u-turn on Vista Lane.
Police said Ingram was thrown off the motorcycle and a third car traveling westbound hit her.
Ingram died at the scene of the crash.
"The motorcycle at this point would have no reason to, you know, going eastbound on 2nd Street to expect someone to pull a u-turn ," said Jenny Monroe, Edmond police spokesperson.
Police said William Cain, the motorcycle driver, was taken to the hospital for his injuries.
The driver of the car who made the u-turn stayed at the scene and police said he is fully cooperating with the investigation.
At this time no charges or tickets have been issued.
Edmond police told News 9 the investigation in ongoing.
