STOCKTON, CA - Two teens died in a single car crash Friday night after the car spun out of control while going 100 mph.

Amanda Schieber, 17, the driver and ShaMar Charlie Barbary, 15, the passenger were in a BMW driving southbound on West Lane between 8 Mile Road and Morada Lane, said California Highway Patrol spokesman, Angel Arceo.

Arceo said Schieber was switching from the right lane to the left lane when the car spun out of control and hit the concrete median.

The car was airborne, flew over another vehicle on the northbound lane, and crashed over the guardrail and into the creek.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.

CHP is still investigating the crash.

Friends of the victims gathered at the crash site this morning.

"This was the last place she was so I wanted to be here too," said Schieber's best friend, Giselle Predo.

"She was so funny. She always stood up for me and gave me the best advice. She's our angel now," said Predo.

At 7 PM Saturday night, dozens of classmates and friends came for a candle light vigil for the two popular friends. The immediate families did not support teens going to the crash site, because they thought that section of West Lane was too dangerous for pedestrians to walk.

"He was a great person," Reginald Barbary said of his youngest son.

"I wish I could be half the human being he is."

Reginald Barbary said he finds comfort in the close friends, family, and the hundreds of friends who have nothing but wonderful things to say about ShaMar. And knowing that in the short time he had in life, he lived his life as a good, honest person and friend to everyone.
