Two deceased after in-town car crash


Two females are deceased after an early morning one-vehicle crash, and a community vigil will be held tonight before the fireworks. Two others in the crash were taken to the local hospital, but their names have not been released.

Fourth of July organizers canceled day-time events after it was discovered Molly Parks, 18, and Marie Giesbrecht, 19, had passed away as a result of the crash. Petersburg Police Department received notice of a car over the guard rail and in a ditch near the South Harbor parking lot around 7:30 a.m. on Saturday. The investigation is ongoing.

Parks graduated from Petersburg High School in 2016. Giesbrecht graduated from PHS in 2015.

The fireworks will remain as scheduled at 11 p.m. with a candlelight vigil held in front of Wells Fargo Bank starting at 10 p.m.
