PULASKI, WI (WTAQ) - Over 100 people attended a memorial service in Pulaski to remember five young girls struck and killed by a car 25 years ago.  

Brenda Hylok, Laura Karcz, Jodi Prokop, and Jessica McKeefry, all 13 -- were killed along with 12-year-old Nicole Watia. 

They were walking together on a sidewalk on October 7th of 1988, when a speeding car driven by a 17-year-old boy jumped a curb and struck the girls and then slammed into a tree. 

The driver had epilepsy, and he suffered a seizure just before he lost control of his vehicle. He was not charged. 

Monday night's tribute was held at a park in Pulaski where a memorial honors the five girls. 

Five white doves were released to honor each of the fallen youngsters.
