Loved ones of one of those eight victims held a vigil to remember 12-year-old Jacob Richard.

They miss and remember all eight people lost in that crash. Richard’s loved ones wanted to do something small and intimate to remember him alone.

“Knowing that I have memories of Jacob, it helps me day to day to look back over memories of him,” said a family memeber.

Friends and family members listened to songs, said prayers and held pictures and candles.

Jacob left a mark on everyone who knew him.

A 16-year-old girl was rescued from the truck that caught fire. She was also at the vigil to remember Richard.

Investigators and the Florida Highway Patrol officials said, that this will be a long and complex investigation.

The Florida Highway Patrol is urging anyone with relevant information concerning the car crash incident to contact the Florida Highway Patrol Department as any piece of information gotten would be treated and properly investigated.

The cause is still under investigation.
