Friends and Loved Ones Pray for Crash Victims

- Friends and loved ones of Lakarl Williams and the four survivors of a Sunday morning car crash are coming together to mourn and pray. 

It happened just before one on Sunday morning.

Officers say 18-year old Marquis Dennis was driving his GMC Envoy east bound in the 3000 block of Kell West when he lost control.

Dennis was flown by medical helicopter to a Dallas area hospital and is in good condition.

Four others were also in the car.

17- year old Derrick Harley and 16-year old Xavion Smith-William are minors.

So, information is not being released from united regional on their conditions.

18-year old Kamary Williams is listed in good condition.

And, on Monday afternoon, 18-year old Lakarl Williams passed away from his injuries.

We spoke to a friend and teammate of Williams before news of his passing.

He and other classmates are turning to social media to mourn, and to also show support for the four survivors.

"Everybody just gotta stay strong together, and God works in mysterious ways and if we all pray god will show us the light," Cederic battle, friend and teammate of Williams, says. 

For friends and loved ones of the five high school students in Sunday's crash, right now is a time of prayer and also a time to try to begin to heal.

"Just saying strong for them. It's very emotional, but we gotta just stay strong for them because I know that Lakarl and them would want us to just stay strong," Battle says. 

Hirschi students gathered Sunday night to pray for the five victims.

Battle says that's all they can do right now while staying strong for their friends.

"We going to get through this together," Battle says. 

There is no word yet on how many of the boys were or were not wearing seat belts.
