Four teenagers were killed and two others are injured after a rollover crash that involved a stolen vehicle on Monday morning in Buffalo.

There were six teens in the car when it crashed into a wall on Route 33 around 6:45 a.m., with everyone except the driver ejected from the vehicle.

Four teens, all from Buffalo, were killed in the crash.

They have been identified as Marcus Webster, 19; Swazine Swindle, 17; Kevin Payne, 16; and Ahjanae Harper, 14.

Another 14-year-old girl was injured but is out of intensive care.

The 16-year-old driver is charged with third-degree unauthorized use of the car and fourth-degree criminal possession of the stolen property.

He is due back in court on November 15.

The teenagers may have gotten the idea to steal the car from a TikTok challenge that urges people to break into Kia and Hyundai cars with phone chargers, according to Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia.
