Three cousins — Bradley Webb, Devan Alexander Neil King-Peters, Philip Morgan Peters Jr. — have been identified as the young men who died after their car crashed into a weigh scale building west of Hope, B.C. on Friday.

Webb, 20, of Hope was driving, while 19-year-old King-Peters, of Chilliwack, and 18-year-old Peters, known as Morgan rather than Phillip, were his passengers.

A Facebook memorial page has been set up and a memorial will be held for the young men on March 17. King-Peters' stepfather has also started a crowdfunding page in support of the families.

"I loved them to pieces for every single goofy thing they ever did. They were inseparable from young mischievous boys, up to plotting and vowing pacts with spit handshakes," said Mark Peters on the gofundme page. 

"I'm just asking for any financial support, small or what have you, to help the families make it through the tragic loss, [and make it] a bit easier for any unforeseen expenses that are sure to come.

"This is a huge shock for this entire family." 

​The coroners service said their car was headed westbound on Highway 1 when it left the road, flipped into a ditch and crashed into the Hunter Creek weigh station building west around 4 a.m. PT. 

Barb McLintock, a spokesperson with the coroners service, said all three men died at the scene. The cause of the crash has yet to be determined.
