SOMERS, N.Y. (AP) - A suburban New York community is mourning the loss of a nun and longtime teacher who was killed in a two-car crash.

The Journal News reports (https://lohud.us/1ROHdC2 ) 80-year-old Barbara Heil was pronounced dead at the scene in Yorktown around 4 p.m. on Saturday.

Heil was on the faculty of Kennedy Catholic High School for nearly 50 years.

School officials say Marie Murphy, another nun who’s also on the faculty at the high school, was severely injured in the wreck. It’s unclear what her condition is.

A school spokesman says a team of specialists will be at the school beginning Monday to offer counseling to students.

A funeral Mass will be held Friday.
