A Livermore High School student was killed and five other classmates were injured following a solo car crash late Friday night, according to the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District.
The Alameda County Fire Department said they responded to a report of a pickup truck that was 200 feet down an embankment on Del Valle Road just before 11:30 p.m., in an unincorporated area of Livermore.
Fire officials said that a total of six people were involved in the crash. Two of the victims were airlifted to a nearby hospital. While four others were transported via an ambulance.
One of the victims was trapped inside the vehicle and an extrication was required once the vehicle was stabilized, fire officials said.
One of the victims died from the crash. A GoFundMe page identified the victim killed as 15-year-old Hunter Diemert. His 16th birthday would have been in just a few days.
On Sunday, flowers, candles and cards line a fence outside Livermore High School, honoring Diemert.
Just a day earlier, a vigil for the victims of the crash was held at Livermore High School.
Dr. Kelly Bowers, Superintendent of the Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District released the following statement on Saturday:
"It is with heavy hearts that we have been informed of last evening's devastating vehicle accident involving six of our Livermore High School students, one who has since passed away. No words can express our collective sadness and grief at this tragic news. Our hearts go out to this young man's loved ones and our entire school community. We are all understandably grieving this tragic loss of young life. In this difficult aftermath, we are sending hope and strength for a full recovery to our other injured students involved and their families. As always, during periods of crisis and trauma, our school district and entire Livermore community will pull together, comfort and support each other. "
The St. Michael Catholic Church in Livermore identified one of the six victims as Sal Barbilinardo, a Livermore High School student and a former student with the catholic school. Officials added Barbilinardo is in critical condition.
The names of the other students involved the crash were not immediately known.
District officials said that crisis support teams are being mobilized for students and staff.
