DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Two Ohio teenagers who died in a crash involving a stolen car have been identified.

Fifteen-year-old Bayleigh Stewart, of Hamilton, and 17-year-old D'Shawn Ward, of Dayton, were killed and two others were injured when the car slammed into a pole around 11:45 p.m. Wednesday.

Montgomery County Coroner Kent Harshbarger released the teens' identities Friday.

The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reports that about two dozen people attended a vigil Thursday at the accident site at Hoover Avenue and Graystone Drive to remember one of the victims.

The owner of the vehicle told the newspaper she inadvertently left her keys in the car.
