In memoriam

Nicholas Poto, a Maine West high school senior, passed away this past Thursday from injuries received in a car accident on Wednesday night.

Edit: Here's another article. This one states Nick Poto passed at the Northwest Community Hospital in Arlingotn Heights. I'm not sure which is correct.,1,4032074.story?coll=chi-newsroom-hed
