Del Oro High Student Who Died In Crash Remembered At Basketball Game

LOOMIS (CBS13) – There was a moment of silence at a Del Oro High School basketball game Wednesday for a Loomis teenager killed in a car crash over the weekend.

Morgan Helman, 17, was the fourth Del Oro student to die in the last six weeks.

“She was just a really kind-hearted person,” Logan Bridges said.

As students filled the bleachers, one seat sat empty that normally filled by a person who many grew to adore in the little time she attended the school.

“She wasn’t afraid to introduce herself to anyone,” said Ash Mohammadi.

On Sunday, Helman died in a crash when a 17-year-old driver with a provisional license likely over corrected an SUV and caused it to roll, says CHP.

The SUV carried five other passengers, including Helman and a 13-year-old.

“I think I was a little overwhelmed,” said Assistant Principal Paul Lundberg.

In the last six weeks, the assistant principal says they’ve lost three students.

The parents of those students, including Helman’s mother, thanked everyone for their support. They say it’s helping them heal, but it’ll never be easy.

“You just keep telling yourself that it can’t be true, but after awhile you realize that you’re never going to see her again,” said Bridges.

Helman helped get the anti-bullying program started at Del Oro. Even though it was her first year at the high school, she had made many friends.
