MOAB, Utah -- Candles illuminated the Grand County High School football field in Moab Wednesday night as dozens of students remembered two classmates killed in a crash Sunday. 

Taylor Bryant, 14, and Connor Denney, 16, were both thrown from a vehicle and killed during a rollover crash on Lasal Loop road.

Three other teens were critically injured in the crash, which occurred before 7:30 a.m. Sunday. Police believe alcohol and excessive speeds may have contributed to the crash.

Memorial services for both teens are planned for next week, and a GoFundMe page has been set up to assist the families with funeral costs.
