PAOLA, Kan. — You can still see the remnants of a deadly crash from this past weekend in Miami County.

There’s glass on the bridge and a broken concrete pillar that the car went through when the 18-year-old driver lost control.

There were four people in the car when the driver lost control just after 4:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

Brandon Guilfoyle-Pace, 22, of Greeley, and 17-year-old Jocelyn Razo, of Paola, died from their injuries. The driver was taken to an area hospital in critical condition.

Monday afternoon friends and family of the four people involved gathered to show support.

It was an emotional day for them, as they remember two people who said they are gone too soon.

“Before they left, they were angels. They’ve always been angels,” Matthew Gregg said. “They brought smiles to rooms with tears. They also just made everybody smile. They worried more about everybody else than they did themselves. They were just also uplifting as people.”

Gregg said his nephew was in the car, but walked away without any injuries.

According to Miami County Sheriff Office, the driver is still in critical condition in the hospital.
