Funeral services held for student killed in I-80 school bus crash

Funeral services were held Monday for the East Brook Middle School student killed last week in a school bus crash on Interstate-80.
Services were held in Clifton for 10-year-old Miranda Vargas. News 12 New Jersey is told that about 150 people attended the funeral. Friends and family remembered Vargas as a sweet, respectful child who loved riding her bike.
Vargas, along with teacher Jennifer Williamson-Kennedy, was killed when the school bus they were riding in collided with a dump truck near Exit 25 in Mount Olive. Over 40 other students and adults were injured. The bus was one of three headed to Waterloo Village in Stanhope for a class field trip.
A wake will be held for Williamson-Kennedy Tuesday and Wednesday at Vander Plaat Memorial Home in Paramus. A funeral mass will be held Thursday.
