Services for Streator teen will happen inside a high school gym

Posted by wlpo on November 7, 2014

In the coming months, Pops Dale Gymnasium in Streator will be noisy with high school hoops. Saturday it’ll be the site of a visitation and funeral service.

17-year-old Benjamin Newton of Streator will be remembered during a visitation that starts at 10am and a funeral service at 2pm inside the high school gym. Newton was killed Wednesday night after the car he was riding in crashed north of Streator.

Two other teens in the car are being treated in Peoria with one listed Thursday in serious condition and the other in critical condition.
