Vigil held in Oshawa for UOIT student who was struck and killed
There was a massive gathering in Oshawa on Thursday evening to honour a university student who was struck and killed on Wednesday.
More than 100 people turned out for a vigil at UOIT to remember 19-year-old Rhyss Glenfield.
He was a first-year business student from Mitchell, Ont.
Mourners say Glenfield was a smart young man with a bright future.
He was killed after a car struck him crossing the road at Simcoe Street and Conlin Road.
So far, no charges have been laid against the 18-year-old driver.
Grief counsellors have been brought in to help students and staff deal with the tragedy.
