SULLIVAN COUNT, Ind. (WTHI) - Dozens of people turned out for a prayer circle in the city of Sullivan Saturday afternoon. They gathered to reflect on the lives of three teens recently killed in an accident.

The teens were all students at North Central High School. Abbie Pritle knew one of the crash victims. 16-year-old Kegan Ennen was her boyfriend.

"I was just heartbroken,” said Pritle reflecting on when she heard the news. “It was the toughest time of my life. I mean I would never have thought I would lose my boy."

Dozens of friends and family gathered at the Sullivan town square for a prayer circle and reflection. It was organized with the help of Mezmariah Wilson who attends the Abundant Grace House of Prayer.

“Eventually we had a prayer going and bible verses ready and we shared it and got over 400 shares on Facebook," said Wilson.

After a group prayer, those who knew Kegan Ennen, Thomas Jarosack and Tyson Boyll reflected on their memories of them. Many at the service were laughing and crying about the impact the boys made on their lives.

"He came in at one of the toughest times of my life and he put all the pieces back together and he showed me true love and he gave everything he could possibly have to me," said Pritle.
