Funeral held for Westport girl

The Westport girl who died in a tragic accident last week was laid to rest this morning.

Funeral services were held for Tess Meisel at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Westport.

The 12-year-old was killed during a summer camp trip in Maine last week when a tractor-trailer hit the minivan she was riding in.

A memorial fund has been set up in her name at the Westport Public Library.
