Family and friends will say goodbye to a local soldier who was killed in a car crash earlier this month.
Funeral services for Private First Class Robert Rambo of Bangor Township will be Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Gephart Funeral Home in Bay City.
Rambo was riding in a vehicle carrying three men and two women when the driver lost control on Kawkawlin River Drive in Bay County.
The 20-year-old was on leave and waiting to be deployed in Afghanistan. He was stationed in Germany ahead of deployment and was also a 2011 graduate of John Glenn High School.
Investigators said it appears the driver, Brandon Reno, lost control, sending the vehicle into a ditch. The vehicle, a Pontiac Grand Prix, became airborne, flipped several times and then crashed into a utility pole, which knocked down power lines.
Authorities say Rambo's wife, Cassandra, was among the injured.
Cassandra Rambo and Reno were airlifted to Covenant Hospital and St. Mary's Hospital. The other two occupants, Leandra Galaviz and Justin Palmer, were taken by ambulance to McLaren in Bay City.
Police believe alcohol was a factor in the crash, but the incident is still under investigation.
