FARGO, N.D. (AP) One year after four students at North Dakota State University died in a traffic crash family and friends say they are still trying to move on from the tragedy.
The four freshmen were from Minnesota and were heading back to school after President's Day weekend last Feb. 20 when they were killed in a three-vehicle crash near Alexandra.
Killed were 18-year-olds Lauren Peterson of Prior Lake, Megan Sample of Rogers and Danielle Renninger of Excelsior; and 19-year-old Jordann Playle of Elk River.
The parents of the four girls say they are still trying to understand why the tragedy happened.
The NDSU student government plans to mark the anniversary by planting four trees on campus.
