Funeral held for teen killed in crash

Family and friends bid a final farewell Thursday to a teen killed on Mother's Day in a crash on the Bronx River Parkway.

Mourners gathered at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Yonkers to say goodbye to 17-year-old Justin Vaque, who was killed when his SUV crashed and went over a guardrail on the parkway.

Friends wore T-shirts in Vaque's memory and say it's tragic that he lost his life at such a young age.

Westchester County police say Vaque may have been speeding and talking on his cell phone when he crashed.
