MOORE, Okla. - Friends and family members of a teenager killed in a car crash this week gathered to honor her memory Saturday night.
Courtney Snodgrass, 16, died Wednesday after police said a car she was riding in crashed at S. Eastern and I-240. The car was driven by 18-year-old Ashley Robison, who was allegedly drunk. Police said two other teens were in the car and the four were drinking at a motel before getting in the car.
The candlelight vigil near Hilltop Road was organized by Cadyn Webb, who met Courtney two years ago.
"It’s not really about any of us. It’s about somebody we lost. She’s a really good friend, and she didn’t deserve it," Webb said. " Anytime you see her, she just had a big a smile on her face."
Courtney's twin sister, Haley Snodgrass, said it's a new reality she hasn't fully accepted.
"That morning, I tried calling her, and her phone went straight to voicemail, and I know her phone never goes straight to voicemail so I called her back to back to back and knew something was wrong," Haley said. "I still kind of don't believe it. I think about her all the time. She was supposed to come over the day she died. I sometimes think she’ll still come over."
Courtney's aunt, Victoria Barnard, said the number of people who came out in support of her and her family Saturday night speaks volumes.
"All of these children out here… love them, appreciate them. I really, really see how Courtney was loved by schoolmates and everything," Barnard told News 4.
The family tells News 4 they will continue to celebrate Courtney's birthday every year.
