WJBK - The community held a candlelight vigil Monday night to remember three teens killed in a car crash. The driver of the suspected stolen vehicle lost control while being followed by police.

Early Sunday morning police tried to pull over the vehicle, which had been reported stolen. The driver of the vehicle, 17-year-old Charles Miller, took off, though, at a high rate of speed.

The officers attempted to follow the vehicle, but lost sight after the car stirred up a high amount of dust and debris.

Police continued to follow the dust trail to the I-75 service drive, where officers saw the vehicle had turned upside down and was crashed against a median wall near Campbell. Charles had lost control of the vehicle.

Police went down the embankment onto the freeway and called for EMS.

Charles and his two friends, 14-year-old Cynthia Elizarraras and 16-year-old Suhailia Alvarez, died from injuries sustained in the crash.

Charles' family is hoping to raise funds to help cover his funeral expenses. You can make a donation to the family here.
