OAK CREEK, Wis. (WTAQ) - A second person has died in a traffic crash that killed an Oak Creek High School senior who was supposed to graduate Saturday.
Police identified 58-year-old Jack Bednar of Racine as the second victim, after school officials said 18-year-old Lyle Kraning had been killed. Both were driving vehicles that collided around noon Thursday at an intersection in Oak Creek.
Thursday was the final day of classes for the semester, and officials said Kraning had already completed his school work. His fellow seniors were told about his death in a meeting at the end of the school day. Officials opened the building Friday for classmates who wanted counseling.
