Aaron Piper, The Tribune/ Members of the Medora High School volleyball team hug Kassi Lewis-Koskovich's family and friends on Tuesday before the start of Medora's game against Springs Valley. Lewis-Yoskovich, 16, died in a hit-and-run wreck on Aug. 16.
As I scrolled through Facebook posts on the night of Aug. 16, I saw the normal things — finding out what people had done that day, who celebrated a birthday, etc.
But then I started seeing the type of posts that you dread. I could tell something had happened, but at first, people weren’t saying who it involved.
I eventually learned that 16-year-old Kassi Lewis-Yoskovich, a Medora High School sophomore, was killed in a hit-and-run wreck when a truck collided with a mo-ped in Leesville.
Noah Brown, a freshman at MHS, was the driver of the mo-ped. He was wearing a helmet, and he went through surgery earlier this week and was able to return home. Kassi wasn’t wearing a helmet.
