Funeral services will be held today (Wednesday) at 10:30-a.m.,  in the East Sac County High School in Lake View, for a Southwestern Community College student who was killed over the weekend in a northern Missouri crash, just two-miles south of the Iowa border. 18-year old Chrystal Olerich was a freshman volleyball player at Southwestern Community College, in Creston. Olerich, of Lake View, 22-year old 2009 SWCC grad Joshua Bix, of Hopkins, and one other person died Saturday, when the pickup truck they were passengers in rolled over. All seven people in the pickup, including the driver, were ejected from the vehicle, as it rolled. None were wearing their seat belts. 

Sheriff’s officials say the group had recently left a Halloween party. Alcohol was found at the scene. The driver, 22-year old Scott Woods, of Hopkins, MO., has been charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter and three counts of 2nd-degree assault.
