Somers High School students spent Thursday trying to cope with the tragic death of a fellow classmate.
According to police, 17-year-old Eric D?Agnese was killed when he lost control of his car and struck a telephone pole on Route 118 Wednesday. D?Agnese, who was set to graduate in June, was on the wrestling and track teams. The superintendent says a counseling center has been set up to help students with their grief. School officials modified classes so students could seek out counseling.
