Funeral arrangements have been set for one of the four victims killed in a crash near Guntersville over the weekend.

Monday, friends gathered for a candlelight vigil at a Guntersville Pier to honor the victims. State Troopers identified the four victims as Jon Lawson, Blake Keener, Rita Maegan Cordell and Ruben Pacheco.

The crash happened Sunday afternoon on Highway 431, just north of Guntersville. Troopers said the pickup truck driven by Lawson collided with another vehicle. The collision tossed five people from the bed of the truck.

Four more people were in the cab of the truck.
