Sarah Wensley, age 17, and James Haughey, age 17, died on May 5, 2014, at a hospital in Saskatoon, Canada. 

Sarah and JP
Sarah and James (known as JP to his family and friends) were both students at Bethlehem Catholic High School. Around 8 p.m. they were driving to track and field practice with another friend, when a truck sped into an intersection, crashed into two vehicles and into the exterior wall of a nearby business. 

Sarah and JP tragically passed away as a result of their injuries. The third student, a 16 year old girl, was hospitalized in serious condition.

The truck was stolen and was being pursued by police at the time of the collision. It is believed the truck was taken to "go on a joyride".

The other occupant of the truck, a 17-year old girl, who is unnamed is also charged with possession of stolen property and taking a motor vehicle without consent as well as several other charges.

The Police stated that both Cheyann Peeteetuce and the 17-year-old girl had a history of auto theft.

The families of Sarah and JP are devastated by the tragic and senseless deaths of their loved ones.

The friends of Sarah and JP are deeply in mourning.

Friends describe JP as a gifted musician who played piano and sang. He was also into track. He was helpful and interested in others and maintained a positive attitude. He was quick to laugh. JP was looking forward to graduating in June, 2014.

Sarah is described as a sensible teenager who was pleasant and helpful. She loved track. She was smart, pretty and athletic. She had a welcoming facet to her personality.

Sarah and JP are survived by many loving friends and relatives who will forever mourn them.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and gone the next.

God save us from the thieves and the drunk and doped up drivers. They are killing us, Father.

Pray that Sarah is in heaven. Pray that she is at peace and is with God. Amen.

Pray that JP is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
