The Dansville community is uniting after a tragedy. State police say Justin Carpenter, 14, Kyrstin Wolfanger, 14 and Ambra Eddleton, 16 were riding in an SUV that Rebecca Earner, 16, was driving.

James O'Callaghan, New York State Trooper says Earner didn't stop at an intersection on County Route 13C in the town of Burns in Allegany County. A memorial now sits at the scene where the group crashed into a tree.

"The registered owner of the vehicle had no knowledge these kids had taken the vehicle," O'Callaghan said. "One of the occupants took the vehicle without that person's knowledge, picked up a couple of their friends and that's why this collision took place at 4:30 in the morning."

One day after the fatal crash, hundreds came together at Babcock Park in Dansville to remember the four teens.

Earner and Arayana Young were best friends. Young's mom, Ardeth Newberry spoke to us.

"The little life that she lived she was so full of life she was very special to our family," Newberry said.

Three of the four killed were Dansville high school students. Brittany Pittman and Kyrstin Wolfanger met there and became close.

"She was a happy person, no matter she always had a smile... no matter what life put her through," Pittman said.

Many in the community are hurt and lost after the accident, that's part of the reason Tina Petty helped students organize a vigil.

"This community is rallying around our kids they're not just an individuals kids, they're all our kids," Petty said. "We all raise them and take care of them and we want to make sure they're okay."

At the vigil, loved ones wrote chalk messages at the park to remember the group. Loved ones, family and friends exchanged hugs and even spent time with therapy dogs. As the tears keep falling, Newberry sees a message about safe driving and smart choices.

"This is a very tragic thing but it's a lesson learned to all our children," Newberry said. "It's very hurtful but all we can do is be here for each other and let everybody lean on each other."

Troopers say there were five teens in the car at the time of the crash. Police say Kelsi Bird, 16 was wearing a seatbelt. She suffered a broken leg and a broken rib but she is expected to recover.
