A prayer service was held on the campus of California Baptist University Wednesday for the victims of Monday night's deadly fiery crash near Bishop.

A memorial service was also held Tuesday evening on the school's Riverside campus.

Cross-country athletes who saw the crash that killed a coach, two women and injured a dozen teammates said they are still in shock after returning to their university.

Some said they watched in horror as an out-of-control SUV smashed into one of three vans near the eastern Sierra Nevada town of Bishop and caught fire.

Wendy Rice, a cheerleading coach at the university, was driving the van that was hit. She was killed along with two people in the SUV. Sixteen people were hurt in total, including four who originally were listed as having major injuries.

Hospital officials say two who were listed in critical condition, 22-year-old Drew Delis of Encinitas and 21-year-old Alicia Cantanese of Corona, were listed in fair condition Wednesday.
