The funeral mass for Magruder High School senior Hayley McGuire was filled with many more people than you might imagine would know or be acquainted with someone only 18 years old. But it seems like most everyone in upper Montgomery County knew her.

Brittany Ryan graduated from Magruder in 2010.

“…She was a grade below me, but we were all friends, just a big group of friends,” she says.

McGuire died with two other friends in the crash of a vehicle along Olney Laytonsville Road not far from the location of this mass in Derwood. Many here are also acquainted with, or are friends of, the man accused of driving that car. However, most had little to say about him.

Fabio Perez drove McGuire's school bus. He says in his years as a bus driver he's seen this all too often.

“We hear every year about this time, something bad happens. It's hard to say how we're going to try and fix this situation because we don't want it to happen again,” Perez says.

The two other victims -- 18-year-old Spencer Datt and 20-year-old John Hoover -- will be buried Thursday and Saturday.
