The Sulphur Springs community pulled together Saturday for a local family following a crash late Friday, with a time of prayer, celebration and fundraisers established.

Two women and children were reportedly traveling from the Sulphur Springs High School football game in Forney late Friday night, when they were involved in a crash. The women were reportedly killed, and two children were reportedly sent to an area trauma center.

On Sunday, Oct. 6, at 4:30 p.m. on Lamar Primary playground Sandy Reed will be remembered. Sulphur Springs ISD’s Facebook page encourages community members to “Join our Lamar Family as we gather to celebrate Sandy Reed and pray for Jacob and the entire Reed, Ivey and Cavanaugh Families.”
