Learning to Cope.
That's what students in Murray County are trying to do after a deadly crash claims the life of three teens and a 57-year-old man.
That same crash also sent 18-year-old Alexis Pinson to Erlanger Thursday night.
With the beginning of the school year expected to start next week, students are trying to come to terms with the loss of not only a friend, but a fellow classmate.
"Sweethearts. Never hurt anybody. I don't even think they would hurt a fly," said former Murray County High Student Nick Stiles.
Georgia State Police say 17-year-old Josh Roberts and 18-year-old River Sosebee died in the crash. They were both juniors at Murray County High School.
"I think but they will never be forgotten. You know? I think it's going to change a little bit. It's not going to be the same without those two," said Stiles.
The backseat passenger, 17-year-old Chelsie Hullender also died. GSP says Sosebee was driving down Old CCC Camp Road when he lost control and collided with 57-year-old Bryan Bartley on a riding lawnmower.
Bartley, too passed away. Another passenger in the truck, Alexis Pinson survived and was flown to Erlanger.
"I just never realized how important they are and how they could be gone so quickly, any of them. That could have been my son. That's what I believe was most parent's reaction," said Ginger Garrison.
So instead of starting off the first football game of the season with cheers and chants, Murray County High begins with a moment of silence.
"Tonight, from here on out kids come to school over the next several days as we're doing things, we are here for our kids and we have to remove ourselves and make them our number one priority," said Murray County High School Principal Gina Linder.
Linder says guidance counselors and administrators were on hand Friday night to help students if they needed it. She also says they met with County school leaders to implement a plan for the first day of school Tuesday.
GSP says Bartley was mowing someone else's lawn when he was struck and killed by the car.
Murray County lost their first game to Southwest Whitfield, 21 to 22.
