ANCHORAGE- Two 15-year-old Anchorage girls killed by a truck that ran onto a sidewalk will be remembered at a public memorial service.
The families of Jordyn Durr and Brooke McPheters will celebrate the lives of the best friends together later this week.
The families released a statement through the Anchorage Police Department asking for privacy.
The girls at about 6:45 Friday night were walking along Abbott Road near 88th Avenue when they were struck by a pickup driven by 31-year-old Stacey Allen Graham.
Police say tests indicated Graham's blood alcohol was three times the legal limit.
He continued to be treated Sunday for injuries from the crash. Police spokeswoman Dani Miren says Graham will be arrested when he's discharged from the hospital.
