Five Teenagers Killed in Horrific Memorial Day Crash in Newport Beach

At the Los Angeles Times, "Five Irvine teens killed in fiery Newport Beach car crash."

Four of the five attended my son's school, Irvine High. See, "Two sisters among five teens killed in fiery crash":

The five teenagers killed in a car crash that Orange County officials said was one of the most violent they had ever seen included a pair of high school seniors and two sisters.

Authorities on Tuesday identified the high school students as: Abdulrahman M. Alyahyan, a senior at Irvine’s University High School; Nozad Hamawendi, a junior at Irvine High School; Cecilia Zamora, a junior at Irvine High; and sisters Aurora and Robin Cabrera, a sophomore and a senior, respectively, at Irvine High School.

"There are simply no words to convey the sorrow felt by our staff and our students and our community and nor are there sufficient answers to explain the loss of these vibrant young teenagers," said Terry L. Walker, superintendent of schools in Irvine.
My son knew one of the girls. I'm sure the next couple of weeks will see a number of memorial ceremonies, so I'll be updating.
