TAUNTON, Mass. (WPRI) — Dighton-Rehoboth High School is remembering a teen and former student who was killed in a car crash over the weekend.
Eric Noble, 19, of North Dighton, was killed when her car hit a utility pole early Sunday morning.
In the school’s 2015 yearbook, Noble gave herself the goal to laugh every day for the rest of her life – and find happiness in everything she does.
“She was just a phenomenal person and we’re definitely going to miss her,” said Dighton-Rehoboth principal Kevin Braga.
According to Taunton police, Noble was killed just after midnight on Sunday in a single-car crash on Route 44.
“She was definitely a part of our school community that we missed – even when she just graduated last year, you know,” Braga said. “We miss that personality, that high-energy type of student.”
Braga said that while in school, Noble was involved with the school’s Best Buddies program – an organization where students are paired with special education students to be their friend.
“She was definitely involved in kind of putting a personality on the school. She very much so came across as a very spirited student,” Braga said. “We just want out kids to be safe, whether they’re a currently a student, or an alumni, we always want them to be safe.”
Taunton police are still investigating the crash.
