Memorial service held for van crash victims
At a funeral service held Friday, family, friends and parishioners lined up to say their final goodbyes to the six Bronx church members killed in a tragic crash last month.
The victims were all members of the Joy Fellowship Ministry of Baychester.
Back in September, 14 ministry members were in a van en route to a banquet upstate when a tire blew out. The driver lost control and the vehicle flipped over, killing six passengers and injuring eight others.
Among the deceased were Bishop Simon White and his wife, Zelda. At the services, emotional parishioners said they will always remember White and his message.
Officials say two of the crash survivors are back at home, while the others are still in the hospital.
