A grade 11 student at Morinville Community High School died Friday after succumbing to injuries she received in a December car collision. MCHS Principal Don Hinks told parents, students and staff of the passing of Janae Tulloch in a public MCHS Facebook post on Sunday evening.
“She was in a car accident prior to Christmas and succumbed to her injuries Friday evening,” Hinks said in the post.
Hinks went on to say special prayers for Tulloch and her family would take place at the school Monday morning.
