LANCASTER, N.Y. (WKBW) — Lancaster police are investigating a fatal crash on Warner Road in which two 19-year-old women were killed.

According to police, emergency officials responded to the area of 206 Warner Road around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday for a report of a vehicle that struck a tree and was on fire.

Police said the 19-year-old man who was driving was transported to ECMC and is in critical condition. The two 19-year-old women were passengers in the vehicle and were killed. Their names are not being released pending notification of families.

The father of one teen told 7 News Reporter Michael Schwartz, "She loved life." Another family member of the same teen added, "She was perfect." That young woman's siblings set up a GoFundMe that has raised more than $27,000 in about 24 hours for the National Foundation for Teen Safe Driving.

Lancaster Schools confirmed to 7 News Thursday afternoon the two women who were killed were recent graduates.

Anyone with information regarding the crash is asked to contact Lieutenant Shaun DiMino at (716) 683-2800.
