There was a prayer service at the site of the crash that killed five young men from Marion County 50 years ago. The young men were Stanley Ballard, Ray Clark, David Hamilton, Donnie Donahue and Wayne Simms. The boys had just attended their high school sports banquet in Loretto. Five concrete crosses are located on Highway 49 in Loretto where the crash occurred. A memorial Mass was also held in memory of the young men at St. Francis of Assisi Church.
