The brother and sister who died following a crash in Wheatland were remembered on Saturday by family and friends in Caledonia.

Funeral services were held Saturday morning for 20-year-old Christopher Peterson and 17-year-old Emily Peterson at First Presbyterian Church.

Both Christopher and Emily died following a crash at North Road and Route 36 in Wheatland on July 16. That crash also took the life of 21-year-old Taylor Binnert. Her funeral was held last Saturday, also at the First Presbyterian Church. Two others were also seriously injured in the crash.

On Tuesday, local lawmakers met to examine the intersection in Wheatland, in order to determine what changes need to be made to make the area safer.
