A Dorsey High School senior killed in Thursday’s fiery tour bus crash was remembered with flowers, candles and signs outside the campus Monday as students and faculty continued to mourn her loss.
Jennifer Bonilla was killed when a bus that was carrying Los Angeles area high school students to Humboldt State University was struck by a FedEx delivery truck that crossed lanes of traffic on Interstate 5 near Orland.
Bonilla's friend, Sabrina Garcia visited the campus Monday, where crisis counselors were on hand to help any grieving students.
"I don't understand why someone that's really smart and had a future ahead of her deserved something like that," Garcia said. "She was just a happy person."
Parent Sheiaundra Brady said the crash hit close to home as she prepares her own children for college.
"As many other parents can say, it could have been my child," Brady said.
The school’s baseball coach Peter Dobson told NBC4 that beginning next week, the team would be wearing black button in memory of Bonilla. He said that most of the team knew the high school senior.
Nine members of the baseball team visited the memorial before heading out to a game later in the afternoon.
Counselors were expected to be at the school Monday and Tuesday as students began their spring break.
A donation site was set up for Bonilla by Nancy Perdomo-Browning, a co-worker of the victim’s sister.
