ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) - A 9-year-old boy killed in a drunken driving crash in Rochester is being remembered as a caring young man who often worried about how others were doing.
A funeral service for Willy Siems was held Thursday at a funeral home in Plainview, his home town. The fourth-grader was killed Saturday night by a driver accused of going the wrong way on a road with a blood alcohol content more than twice the legal limit.
Hundreds attended a visitation for Siems Wednesday night at the funeral home.
Summer Bishop tells KMSP-TV (https://tinyurl.com/k5mmh4w ) her nephew touched a lot of people and was very much loved. Willy’s 7-year-old cousin was also injured in the crash. Jeramiya Bishop suffered a several spinal injury.
