Family and friends are gathering to say a final farewell to Clarkstown North High School junior Vladyslav Hvalyk this week.
Visiting hours are tomorrow at 4 p.m. at Michael J Higgins Funeral Home in New City.
The funeral is Thursday in Spring Valley.
The 16-year-old died last Thursday after he was a passenger in car that crashed on Congers Road in New City.
The alleged drunk driver, 18-year-old Alan Mendoza, is facing a handful of felonies, including aggravated vehicular homicide and second-degree manslaughter.  Investigators say the crash also seriously injured a 17-year-old girl. She is Mendoza's girlfriend, according to his attorney.
A GoFundMe to pay for funeral expenses has raised more than $55,000.
