Guam - Family members have identified the victim's involved in this weekend's fatal car crash as 25-year-old Jermaine Carriaga and 19-year-old Jayneal Quintanilla. The driver who survived the crash has been identified as 29-year-old Eric Carriaga, who is currently in stable condition at Guam Memorial Hospital.

The three were in a mercury mystique traveling southbound when the driver lost control of the vehicle and encroached into the oncoming lane before colliding with a guardrail near Father Duenas Memorial School. Guam Highway Patrol officers continue to investigate if speed or alcohol were contributing factors in the crash.

Devastated by the accident, Jermaine's sister, Antoinette Wells says the impact of their loss is tremendous on all generations of the family. She describes Jermaine as being someone who lived his life to the fullest, and who was a great role model to his nieces and nephews.

Wells says the family is still trying to cope with the death, adding he will be greatly missed. In the meantime, rosaries are being held nightly at 7pm at Our Lady of Peace Church in Chalan Pago.
