MOJAVE -- Four Oakland teens have been identified as the people killed in a single-vehicle crash on a remote Kern County highway.
Kern County officials told The Bakersfield Californian that Malia Moa, David Moa, Rachel Fisiiahi and George Moa died at the scene after the SUV George Moa was driving smashed into the center divider on Highway 58 east of Mojave Monday afternoon.
Officials say all four victims were 19 years old.
A fifth person suffered critical injuries in the crash. That person's name has not been released.
David Moa had recently begun to train with the Laney College football team, and coach John Beam had seen a bright football future ahead for the teen, who wanted to play tight end.

"He had a real gentle soul," Beam said. "He had a good smile on his face. And he was finding himself."
After students learned of Moa's death Tuesday, they sat down with Beam to share memories of the teen, who was known for his laughter.
David, Malia and George Moa were cousins who were on their way home from watching a rugby tournament with family and friends in Las Vegas when they crashed, Beam said.
