Herscher High School students came together (Thursday) to remember Kameron Allison, a 15-year-old classmate and friend, who died in a tragic traffic accident.
A balloon launch at the school baseball field was to make sure Kameron was not forgotten. The freshman high school baseball player lost his life when a drunk driver slammed the car he was riding in.
Allison died Sunday night in a car crash. His brother was injured and is in stable condition. Kameron was a passenger.
The other driver is facing DUI charges.
Allison's brother was driving on Illinois Route 17 toward Reddick when Carmella Larson of St. Anne RAN a stop sign and crashed into his car.
In reference to Kameron's love for baseball (and the Chicago Cubs), his family wrote an obituary containing baseball metaphors. The obit stated Cameron had been called up to the big leagues.
