SALISBURY, Md.- Seventeen-year-old Natalie Insley was laid to rest in her hometown of Tyaskin on Monday.  Insley was killed last week in a car accident on Sharptown Road.

Insley's funeral was held Monday morning at James M. Bennett High School in Salisbury where she was a student.  Visitors in the front lobby were greeted by hundreds of photos of Insley with her family and friends.  Some of Insley's art work was on display in the school's atrium as well.  Throughout the morning and into the early afternoon, hundreds of people stopped to pay respects to Insley's family.

It was last week when police said four teenagers were involved in a single-car crash on Sharptown Road.  Police said the driver of the car lost control and struck a tree.  Insley was in the front passenger seat of the car and died as a result her injuries.

The news of the accident sent shock waves throughout Wicomico County and sparked an outpouring of love from friends, family and complete strangers to the Insley family.  A lemonade stand was set up on Norris Twilley Road in Mardela Springs by students at Northwestern Elementary School to help raise money for Insley's family.  Saturday, the stand was moved to Oakey's Farm Market in Hebron.  Altogether, WBOC has been told the kids were able to raise about $20,000.

Not far from her home in Tyaskin, Insley worked at The Red Roost in Quantico where her passing shocked her co-workers.  The restaurant said in a statement: "Everyone at The Red Roost loved her dearly, and she will be greatly missed by everyone of us. She was always so kind and helpful to everyone. We will continue to pass on her love and kindness. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of her amazing friends and family members."

Following the funeral service Monday at James M. Bennett High School, Insley was laid to rest in her hometown at Tyaskin United Methodist Church Cemetery.
