Rinehart family honored day before year anniversary of car crash

Tomorrow will mark one year since three members of the Rinehart family were killed by a drunk driver on their way home from a marching band competition.

Sunday night an open house was held at Foundry Center For The Arts in Newburgh.

People wrote prayer cards for the family to be placed on a commemorative wall.

There was also live music, and throughout the evening, there were several balloon releases.

Each balloon had a note tied to it with a message for the Rinehart family.

"I think that when it happened we weren't really prepared, you know, no one was expecting it, and I think as time has gone on, you know, we've seen so many people who've just been impacted, by them and I think, their memory's really what's shining through,” said Josie Rinehart.

Earlier this month Mason Hartke was sentenced to 15 years for causing the crash that killed father David Rinehart, his mother, Ruth Ann Rinehart, and David's daughter, Josie's sister, Sophie Rinehart.
