STANSBURY PARK, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – The Stallions of Stansbury High are mourning the loss of Senior, Talia Littlefield after she was killed in a crash Wednesday night. 

Dr. Scott Rodgers, the Tooele School District Superintendent says, “We’ll reach out to the family and we will do something special at graduation.”

On Wednesday, Littlefield was riding with a friend on the Mountain View Corridor when the car she was in was t-boned at 6200 South.

Both drivers were transported to a local hospital and Littlefield was pronounced dead on scene, officials say. 

“We want kids to be safe, and to be careful, and to be smart, and the message is we love and care for every one of our kids so it hurt when you just, you know when you have one, it is not a number or a static – it’s a name, And so we just want our kids to be careful,” says Dr. Rodgers.

The Tooele County School District brought in grief councilors for the students and staff. Officials say many school and staff members are saddened over the loss.

Dr. Rodgers says the district will be sending out a letter to parents to let them know what is going on with the high school and how to talk to their children about grief.

The district is offering support to Talia’s three siblings who go to district schools as well as her family.
