SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A memorial has been set up at the scene of Friday's deadly wreck that killed two teens and seriously injured two others.

16-year-old Megan Mote was killed when the car she was riding in on I20 eastbound crossed the median into the westbound lane and struck another car and an 18-wheeler near mile marker 29, just east of I220 in Bossier Parish.  17-year-old Arien Manshack was also killed.

Two others teens in the car were seriously injured. Family members say 18-year-old Jonathon, who just graduated from Byrd, remains in a coma and is in the ICU at LSU Health.

Justin Venable, 17, also suffered serious injuries and is at Christus Shumpert. He is currently listed in critical, but stable condition.

Family members say the four teens were headed for a day at the lake.

Visitation for Megan will be held Monday evening from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. at Hill Crest Funeral Home in Haughton. Her funeral is set for Tuesday morning, 11 a.m. at Central Assembly of God on Highway 80 in Haughton.
