The crash happened near the intersection of Ponderosa and Bates in Spokane Valley on Saturday night.

All three teenagers were sophomores at University High School. A memorial for the girls has been placed in the spot of the crash.

“It didn't seem real at first, but when I finally got down here and was looking at the scene, it just broke my heart and took it from me,” said Camerson Cordle, Mott’s friend.

Cordle said he has known 15-year-old Mott since middle school. They had class together at University High.

“Just a great girl, had a potential in life, always got good grades, a happy person all the time,” said Cordle.

Corbin Smith said last month she was with Mott at the wedding of Mott’s brother.
“She was walking down the aisle with her parents and they just went through the best time of their life and now this happened,” said Smith.

Mott played varsity soccer at University High.
