BATESVILLE, AR (KAIT) -

The city of Batesville dedicated a memorial to two teens who lost their lives last year.

Friday, the city held a ceremony to honor Will Olson and Camdon Osborn who died in a car wreck in October.

Four other teenage boys were injured in that wreck as well.

The memorial is a large stone with the pioneer mascot and a ribbon with the following quote engraved:

“Celebrating the lives of Camdon “Cam” Osborn and William “Will” Olson. Two Batesville Pioneers whose lives touched so many.”

The memorial was placed at the base of the flagpole on the Terry Sims Diamond Sports Complex in Batesville.
