It’s been almost half a year since three Wetumpka High School teens and an Elmore County Deputy died in a two-car head on collision. 

 
Saturday the classmates and family of the three high school juniors held an event to help keep their memories alive. 
 
Dozens of bikers hit the road to raise money for three scholarships in the name of the three teens killed in a head-on collision with an Elmore County Sheriff’s Deputy. 
 
Austin Augustine, Dylan Bieber and Hoyt Hardin were all 16.
 
Beverly Eddy, Organizer, Austin’s Aunt said, “Accidents and tragedy do not discriminate. It could have been your child. talk to your children and your family members tell them to leave their phones down during driving and tell them do not speed. wear your seat belts it is so important to wear your seat belts.”
 
Three $1,000 scholarships will be awarded at the end of the year at Wetumpka High School. The mother’s hope to grow the scholarships next year because it would have been the boys senior year.
