GEORGETOWN, Del.- Students and staff at Sussex Tech High School are coping with the heartbreaking loss of one of their own over Thanksgiving break. Alexis Brielle Mulford, of Seaford, died the day before Thanksgiving from a car accident.

Delaware State Police said on Wednesday, Nov. 23, 16-year-old Mulford stopped at a stop sign, but then pulled into oncoming traffic on Route 13. Mulford was airlifted to Christiana Hospital, where she later died.

Teachers say Mulford, who was a junior at Sussex Tech, will be sorely missed.

"Just from these past few days, you can see what an impact she had on the school," Kristin Carmen, a math teacher, said. "Just how many friends she had, and what a great loss it's going to be for them and for the school."

Mulford had chosen Carpentry, Mill and Cabinet as her track. Her classmates are now working overtime to finish her final project, a display cabinet, so they can give it to her father. Many students wore pink on Monday to show solidarity, and others have been sporting bracelets with "Brielle" on them.

Mulford is survived by her father and brother. Her mother died in 2007.
