Emergency vehicles pay tribute to school shooting victims

Posted: Updated:

A procession of emergency vehicles paid tribute to the school shooting victims in Newtown, CT. The tribute raised money for funeral expenses and a memorial.

Each vehicle had a magnet bearing the name of a victim. More than 20 vehicles took part, more joined in along the way. The procession started at a rest area near the Ohio border and ended at Lake Superior State College.

"The highest honor you can show when somebody passes away is to have a procession of emergency vehicles in their funeral so we thought it would be fitting for this," said

Argentine Township firefighter Kelly Lawrence drove with his wife.

"It's touching just to be part of it," said Lawrence.

Emergency workers contributed donations to participate in the procession.
