DENVER (CBS4)– Friends and family gathered in Confluence Park on Monday night to remember five teenagers who were killed in a violent rollover crash over the weekend.
The Colorado State Patrol says their car was speeding early Sunday morning when the driver lost control of the vehicle near the Arapahoe-Elbert County Line. It ran off the right side of the road and through a ditch, became airborne, collided with the ground, became airborne a second time rolling end over end and coming to a rest as it caught fire.
There were three males and two females in the car. One of the females was ejected. No one survived.
Dozens gathered to remember the victims in a candlelight vigil. One family member talked about two of the victims, her cousins Levi and Angelo Andazalo.
“The family needs support; everybody needs it and that we could have a moment for them, how they left, is just tragic,” said vigil organizer Manuella Castaneda.
“It’s just hard, as a mother I could not imagine it, it just feels heartbreaking. They had a whole life ahead of them,” said family friend Christina Castaneda.
