FARMINGDALE - The Farmingdale community came together on Sunday evening at St. Kilian Church to remember the victims of a crash that killed four teens.

As News 12 has reported, a Nissan carrying five teens crossed into an oncoming lane on Conklin Avenue early Saturday morning, colliding head-on with a Chevy Suburban.

Four teens were killed. Family members have identified three of the victims as Noah Francis, Jesse Romero and Carley Lonborg.

Carly's dad, John Lonborg, describes his daughter as a miracle given to his family from God.

"She was only 14, and in those short years, she lived a full and vibrant life and touched everyone who was lucky to have known her," he says.

Family members honored Carly at the service by wearing her favorite pattern, leopard print.

Firefighters also lined the streets and a Farmingdale High School banner hung in front of the church as hundreds gathered for the service.
