Funeral held for woman killed in wrong-way crash

THROGS NECK - Family, friends and a heartbroken community gathered today to say goodbye to a Bronx woman killed in a wrong-way crash.

Donnelly was a basketball star at Preston High School in 2004 and had returned to work for the school admission's department last September.
