HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

A community is mourning the loss of two teenagers Friday night, and praying that two others recover from their injuries.

Hilton Head Island High School held a vigil Friday night for the four teens involved in a deadly crash that happened on Dillon Road early Friday morning.

In a packed auditorium, prayer and emotion filled the room as Hilton Head Island High remembered Cesar Herrera and Cory Rocha, the two teens killed in the crash.

Through tears and hugs, the school supported the family and prayed for the recovery of Ramon Morales and the other passenger. This was a tragic accident that shook up the entire school.

"When I found out, I couldn't move," said student Jonatan Diaz. "I was in shock. I was like, it was just so quiet today. People were sad."

The South Carolina Highway patrol said speed may have been a factor in the accident.
