A vigil was held Monday night for a Blanchester teen killed a morning crash in Clermont County.
The Ohio State Patrol said that 19-year-old Brandi Fumarola drifted off State Route 133 Near Taylor Pike in Goshen Monday morning.
She overcorrected and the car spun out of control going off the left side. The car then hit a pole.
Fumarola was a graduate of Blanchester High School. Local 12's Paula Toti explains how her family gathered at her alma mater in her honor.
Fumarola's friends began planning the vigil around 4:30 p.m. A couple of hours later, hundreds turned out to show support.
"We expected a big crowd but this is more than we expected. But she touched so many lives."
There were 19 balloons for the 19 year old who graduated from Blanchester High School last year and ran track during her high school career. "She's one of the very few people I know who was happy 99.9% of the time."
"She had a bad haircut one time and she somehow loved it, she loved that it was a bad haircut. She could make anything happy. Yes, she was just happy. She wanted to be in National Guard like her brother."
She also wanted to go into early childhood development and was a student at UC Clermont working hard. "We worked together the last three years at McDonalds and you could be having a bad day and she would come in and that smile would just be there."
