MCMINVILLE, Tenn. – Monday was the first day back to school for Warren County High School students in McMinnville, after a weekend crash killed four of their classmates.

Flags at the school flew at half-staff in remembrance of the four students.

The Warren County School system said all four were seniors preparing to graduate in the spring.

Counselors were on hand Monday for students who needed to talk about the loss.

A student government Facebook page said students were taking up collections for a memorial service for the four, who were identified as Kaimen Collins, Christopher Frazier, Dominique Pinegar and Shanna Seiderer.

"That school is tore all to pieces today," said Gordon Woodlee, who lives next to the crash scene.  "I talked to a teacher last night, and he said he dreaded today because it's going to be one heck of a deal today, because everybody knew them."

Tennessee Highway Patrol officers estimated to witnesses on scene that the car the teens were riding in may have been traveling more than 100 miles an hour when it ran off the road early Sunday morning.
