SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - More than 200 people have taken part in a fundraiser in honor of five suburban Detroit teenagers involved in a car crash that killed three of them.

The Detroit News (https://bit.ly/1efrhKB ) reports a 5 kilometer walk and run was held Sunday at Stony Creek Metropark in Shelby Township, near the site of the crash. Event organizer Lauren Haboosh says proceeds will go to Driver’s Edge and Drug Abuse Resistance Education.

Authorities say the five students from Utica Community schools were in a sportscar May 8 that went through a guardrail and landed in the Stony Creek River. Sterling Heights 17-year-olds Michael Wells, Jonathon Manolios and Emmanuel Malaj were killed. Seventeen-year-olds Joseph Narra and Greogory Bobchick of Shelby Township were seriously hurt.

The investigation of the crash is ongoing.
