JAMESTOWN —

More than a couple hundred people turned out to mourn a 14-year-old boy killed earlier this week in an ATV accident in Tennessee.

Greeneview Local School District officials confirmed Thursday that Connor Wallace, who was entering his sophomore year at Greeneview High School, died in the accident. He would have turned 15 this summer.

Another sophomore at Greeneview, Brayden Woods, was injured in the accident and remains hospitalized in Tennessee. His family said he is expected to make a full recovery.

Classmates on Thursday night held a candlelight vigil at Greeneview High School, and earlier in the day students painted large rocks on the school grounds in honor of Wallace.

"Doesn't matter if you didn't know them very well, we're a small community, tight-knit, and stuff like this just affects everything," said Tanner Hudson, who will be a senior at Greeneview when school is back in session in August. Hudson was one of the organizer's for Thursday night's vigil.

At the time of the accident, Wallace and Woods were vacationing with other friends at Dale Hollow Lake in Tennessee, according to school officials. The teens were riding the all-terrain vehicle together when it crashed.

Greeneview Local Schools Superintendent Isaac Seevers described Wallace as a well-liked student who was an athlete and a good scholar at the rural school.

District officials opened one of the school buildings for several hours on Thursday for students who were in need of support or counseling.
