Tri-City United School, composed of students from Le Center, Montgomery and Lonsdale, had just won its homecoming football game, 47-6, over Sibley East. Many in the neighboring communities were there.
“It was homecoming night, everybody in town celebrating, and now we have to deal with this tragedy,” said Jean Keogh, mayor of Montgomery, with a population of about 3,000.
“Certainly, our sympathies go out to the families of the victims. One of the good things about a small community is that we tend to pull together and support each other, and help each other. That will be here for the families,” Keogh said.
Lt. Eric Roeske, a spokesman for the Minnesota State Patrol, said it was not yet known what led to Hulgan crossing the centerline.
A “Hulgan Family Fund” has been established at Frandsen Bank & Trust, 125 1st St. S., Montgomery, Minn., 56069.
