Janessa Gordon’s friends and classmates have taken to Twitter to show their support for her and to pray for her to wake up.

Gordon, an 18-year-old from Melrose, was critically injured Sunday night in a one-car rollover on Route 4 in Rangeley, Maine.

On Twitter, her friends and classmates have been tweeting at her, @janesssaxox, and using the hashtag #prayforjanessa.

In addition, a GoFundMe page has been created to help Gordon’s parents with expenses, including their lodging near Gordon’s hospital.

Gordon was the front-seat passenger in the car, driven by Marilines Waldron, of Saugus, who crashed attempting to pass another vehicle. She was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident. Three teens in the backseat suffered minor injuries.

Gordon was set to graduate from Northeast Metro Tech, a vocational high school in Wakefield, on Friday, June 6. She and about 20 of her classmates had rented a cottage in Maine for the weekend to celebrate the upcoming graduation.
