      MALVERNE (WABC) -- The black Subaru was literally cut in half after slamming into a tree.

      It happened around 3:30 Monday morning on the Southern State Parkway heading west in Malverne.

      Friends of the victims came by the scene Monday afternoon.

      They identified the victims as four young men from Queens, all 18 years old.

      "They were nice kids you know loved their families their friends, I just can't believe they're gone you know," said Kevin Perseud, a friend.

      Police say the driver, 17-year-old Joseph Beer from Queens, missed a curve in the road around exit 17.

      17-year-old Joseph Beer was behind the wheel and state police say he was driving with a Learner's Permit which means he should not have been on the road at that hour and should not have had his buddies in the back seat.

      According to the DMV, in New York City and Long Island, anyone with a Learner's Permit must be accompanied by a licensed driver who's older than 21 and they cannot be on the road between 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

      The car swerved across two lanes, flew into the shoulder and hit several trees.

      "I heard a loud boom and felt my house shake," a neighbor said.

      The four victims were ejected.

      Neighbors who heard the bang rushed out to help but it was too late.

      "They were all on the highway scattered. There were like three bodies scattered like five feet from each other," said Michael Campo, a neighbor.

      "We actually found one young man wandering around the accident site. He didn't seem like he had a scratch on him. I don't know how he made it out of the car like that. He was a little disoriented and we asked him if he knew anyone else was in there and he said he thought so," said Pasquale Loungo, a neighbor.

      Now friends of the victims have deal with the pain of it all.

      They sorted through the debris all over the side of the road, taking away reminders of their friends.

      "I just have chills running through my body, I can't believe it happened," Perseud said.

      There are no words that will make the pain go away.

      Just showing up and being supportive is the best way to console the victim's families.

      That's what happened outside the Khan family house Monday night.

      18-year-old Chris Khan was one of the four teens killed in this horrific crash.

      "Right now, it's just devastating. Just devastating. They can't believe what happened," said Somdat Bhewan, victim's father.

      Somdat Bhewan lost his youngest son, 18-year-old Chris Khan, and he's struggling with the numbness and heartache that come with losing a child.

      "It didn't hit me just yet, but it's getting worse actually, yes," Bhewan said.

      "That's foolish you know. I don't know why he would do such a thing like that," said Kevin Misripersued, the victim's friend said.

      In this Guyanese community in Richmond Hill, Queens, anger, frustration and sadness is how friends of the victims are feeling.

      They gave Eyewitness News photos of happier times. They are ones they will cherish as they mourn the four lives cut violently short.

      "It's still hard to believe it. I can't get it through my head that it actually happened," said Travis Mahrana, victims' friend.

      "All I have is memories. It's just so sad," said Aliesha Hossein, victims' friend.

      "I hope it's an eye opener for these kids. It's not going to solve anything, but these kids sometimes when they look back in the wheel of the car, they've got friends, they get out of hand," said John Maharana, victims' friend.

      The investigation into the crash is continuing.




      I saw on the news tonight, I believe it's a 08-09' WRX STI based on the wheels and the grille badge.

      Someone should've grabbed a Beer and let him know how dangerous it is to drive with other teens at a young age

      Yes- easily avoidable death involving young lives is always sad.

      And I will just say what I have been thinking- newish WRX, 17 year old driver... 3:30 a.m. Monday morning with several buddies in the car? That just sounds like something bad is going to happen.

      The extra weight of the passengers coupled with "how fast can it go" probably contributed to the fatal mistake.

      RIP.

      If I had my car when I was 17, the same thing probably would have happened to me.

      Reason number one why I would buy a turbo Legacy before I would buy a WRX: insurance rates because of situations such as this. Yes it is sad, but you can't protect kids from themselves.

      Did you know you can use old motor oil to fertilize your lawn?

      Big differentiator right there. All "hot cars" such as that are high for a reason...
