SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Grief counselors will be on hand Monday at Silverton High School and Bethany Charter School to help students and faculty in the wake of a fatal car crash near Molalla.

The Statesman Journal reports (https://stjr.nl/1p0rTIN ) that Douglas Bonham, a fifth- and sixth-grade teacher at Bethany, and Matthew Albrecht, a junior at Silverton High School, were killed in the single-vehicle crash.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were called just after 7 p.m. on Friday to a crash involving a Honda Accord. Officials arrived at the scene and found both occupants of the vehicle dead.

The cause of the crash is under investigation. Officials don’t believe alcohol was a factor.

Silver Falls School District Superintendent Andy Bellando says Bonham was a mentor to Albrecht for years. Bellando says he didn’t know where they were headed on Friday night.
