CRISFIELD, Md.- Brad Mason, who was Crisfield High School's 2013 valedictorian, died Monday night in a car accident. Police said Mason lost control of the car he was driving, struck a tree and overturned on its roof. He was airlifted to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury where he later died from his injuries.

The Crisfield High School Community held a memorial service Monday evening to remember Mason.

"He was the ideal kid, I mean he's the kind of kid every mom would want," said Lynne Brumley, the nurse at Crisfield High who watched Mason grow into the young man who led the high school band and held a seat on the Somerset County School Board.

"He was just bubbly and fun to be around," Brumley said. "He lit up a room, if you look around at all the pictures you see on Facebook, on most of them he's making faces and cutting up and you know everyone loved to be around him."

But Mason's life was tragically cut short Monday night.

"My daughter and I actually happened on the accident, but I didn't realize it was him," said Pastor Todd Hurley of Asbury United Methodist Church. "When I got home I got a call, I found it was him so I went to the hospital to be with the family."

The community is leaning on each other for support.

"I'm struggling, this is hard. It's really hard, it's hard for all of us who've lost him, who taught him." Edie Belitza said.

"My kids are struggling, my kids that are left are struggling," Brumley said. "I'm sure his mom and dad, it's rough for them. I don't think anyone can understand it."
