UPDATE: Wake Co. Teen Killed In DWI Crash Remembered At Funeral Wednesday

Hundreds of mourners, many of them teenagers, filled a Raleigh church Wednesday to remember a high school student killed in a DWI crash.

Elizabeth Molloy died Saturday morning. Many wore pink ties or scarves in her honor, and her casket was covered in messages... written in pink.

Friends say Elizabeth loved to help others. She volunteered for geriatric hospice care. Molloy was with Garrett Prince who was allegedly drunk when he crashed the car.

Prince's jeep was traveling 75mph in a 30mph zone before crashing into a tree.
