FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Family and friends are saying goodbye to a 17-year-old girl who died last week when her car crashed head-on into a Frederick County public school bus.

Organizers of the funeral service Wednesday morning in Frederick are calling it a celebration of Claire Knight’s life.

The Middletown High School senior died Feb. 11 on a two-lane county road about a mile south of the school.

Deputies say she was driving north toward school when her vehicle veered into the southbound lane and hit a bus that was just beginning its route.

Neither the bus driver nor the lone student aboard was seriously hurt.
