BROOKLYN - Funeral services were held Tuesday for two Borough Park women who were killed in a car crash Monday in Arizona.

Spira and three other friends were sightseeing in Arizona when a truck T-boned their car. Spira and Morgenstern, who was driving at the time, were killed in the crash. The two other women were hospitalized and are expected to survive.

Spira worked as a teacher at a local Jewish high school, and mourners say she was highly involved in the community.
