PINE BLUFF, AR -- Pine Bluff High School students are mourning the loss of one of their classmates who died in a car wreck.

Artisha Rainey was a senior at Pine Bluff High.  Her friends said she was well-liked, and just like any other high school senior, she was looking forward to walking across the stage.

Rainey's life was cut short after she crashed her car on Hazel and 37th Street in Pine Bluff.

She was on the school's basketball team and the yearbook staff.

Her classmates say she is unforgettable.

"We're going to remember her. We're going to keep her name ringing and keep people knowing what Artisha did. Artisha's in a better place. We're going to keep her legacy because she left her mark on Pine Bluff High," Aija Richardson said.

Rainey's services have been set for Saturday at the school gym.
