Grief counselors available after the deaths of four from Woodland Park

In Woodland Park, a town that's been through so much this week, more heartache.

Three members of Boy Scout Troop 230 and one of their leaders were killed in an accident this weekend in Wyoming.

Wyoming Highway Patrol says the crash happened Saturday morning between Thermopolis and Cody.

A car carrying four people returning from a Boy Scout camp crossed the center line on Wyoming State Highway 120 and hit a motor home head-on.

All four in the car died, as did a 3-year-old in the motor home.

Sunday, the Woodland Park community grieved the loss of four lives.

The three teenage boys who died went to Woodland Park High School.

They've been identified as Paul Kekich, 16, Nick Naples, 17, and Alex Ragan, 17.

Their leader who died was Richard Kleiner, who many say was a respected and loved member of the community.

"We're all grieving right now, things are unfolding, and we're just trying to provide the support and structures for our students, for our families, and for our community to get through this tragic, tragic loss of life," said Dr. Jed Bowman, Superintendent for the Woodland Park School District.

The Woodland Park School District will have grief counselors available to friends and family in the community.
