Harker Heights High School students Wednesday morning laid flowers on the campus side of the intersection where 14-year-old freshman Amanda Ware was killed Monday morning.

Bob Massey, Killeen Independent School District public information officer, said no other memorial service is planned at the school.

Visitation for Ware is from 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday at Heritage Funeral Home, 425 E. Central Texas Expressway.

Funeral services will be at 1:30 p.m. Monday at Lifeway Fellowship, 4001 E. Elms Road in Killeen. Burial services will follow at 3 p.m. at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery.

Ware was killed Monday morning when a tractor-trailer went off the road, hitting her and another student, 16-year-old Aurora Shirley.

The accident occurred at 8 a.m. Monday at the intersection of Verna Lee Boulevard/Stillhouse Lake Road and Farm-to-Market 2410 when the two girls were running for cross country practice.

They were standing on the island in the intersection, waiting for traffic to cross the road.

Shirley was taken to Scott & White Memorial Hospital in Temple that morning with a broken leg and other injuries that were not life-threatening. Hospital officials had no information available to report on Shirley's condition Wednesday.

Harker Heights police are continuing the investigation into the accident.
