MIDLAND - Midland Lee High School students continue mourn the loss of one of their classmates after Wednesday's fatal wreck.

Counselors were brought to the high school to help students cope.

On Wednesday afternoon, 18-year-old Ariel Jimenez lost control of his truck, hit a curb, rolled and slid down the Scharbauer drainage ditch and landed upside down.

A group of teens saw what happened and ran to help.

They lifted the truck and Jimenez' head out of the water.

But the passenger, 18-year-old Magaly Ibanez, died at the scene.

Both of the teens were seniors at Midland Lee.
