Maddie Clement and Michaela Martel, both 17 years old, were killed in the accident Saturday night; officials say a 17-year-old girl, and an 18-year-old man were also taken to hospital with traumatic injuries.

Friends have identified the victims of a weekend car crash as 17-year-old Maddie Clement and 17-year-old Michaela Martel.

Both girls were killed in Stittsville Sunday night, when the car they were riding in rolled-over on Fernbank Road and ended up in a wooded area.

A family friend has set up a GoFundMe page in memory of Clement, who it describes as a beautiful, young mother of a 14-month-old daughter.

The page is trying to raise $10,000 to help the family with funeral costs and to put some money away for the baby's future. It had raised more than $2,600 by Monday evening.

Friends also posted tributes to Clement on Facebook, with one friend writing, “You were such an amazing girl and I'm gonna miss you so much.”

Two other teenagers were also seriously injured in the crash, which happened near 7025 Fernbank Rd., north of Jinkinson Road, around 9:15 p.m. on Sunday.

Paramedics took a 17-year-old girl and 18-year-old man to hospital with traumatic injuries, where they remain in serious but stable condition.

Ottawa police spent Monday at the scene.

Const. Chuck Benoit said that police have determined the teens had left a bush party shortly before the crash.

They are now looking to speak to anyone who was at the party and could give police more information.
