KIMBERLY (NBC 26) — A second Kimberly High School student involved in a motorcycle crash has died.

The district wrote to families that 17-year-old Peyton Schorer died from her injuries.

The district wrote:

Our sincere condolences go out to Peyton’s friends and family. A loss of life is always tragic and is especially so when that life is so young. We send our thoughts and prayers to the Schorer family during this difficult time.

Schorer and 17-year-old Anthony Douglas were involved in a crash on October 4 on Buchanan Road near DeBruin Road in the village. Douglas also died from his injuries.

Deputies said it appears the teen lost control of his bike and they went into a ditch. Speed appears to be a factor.

Last week, dozens of friends and family members gathered for a vigil in Neenah outside of ThedaCare. According to Schorer's father, the family has received prayers from over 30 states.
