A Lodi school held a moment of silence today to remember the six members of one family who died in a violent car crash earlier this week.

Students at Lodi Middle School gathered on the outdoor basketball court and released six balloons into the air. Some students cried.

Some knew one of the victims who attended the school -- Irvin Miranda.

A growing memorial is set up at the scene of the accident across the street from the school at Ham Lane and Vine Street.
