EL RENO, Oklahoma -

Heartbreak tonight in El Reno as a second teen passes away following a weekend car crash. The wreck involved several high school students.

On Wednesday, 15-year-old Karson Baker passed away from his injuries. And 16-year-old Jesse Gorbet lost his life Sunday. It's devastating to the community in El Reno.

Friends and classmates in El Reno remember two young lives cut short in a tragic weekend crash. Baker was the varsity quarterback, with a great smile and loved by all. Gorbet was a football and wrestling star, just as popular and fun-loving as Baker. This town lost two great kids.

Gorbet's family says they were numb the first few days, but the outpouring of love and support has been phenomenal.

The family encourages the boys' friends to talk about this, learn from it and share stories, even if it hurts, because the losses are a part of them all now.

The two other kids still in the hospital after the crash are improving. Funeral services for Jesse are Friday at 3 p.m. at the Jenks Simmons Field House.
