Three eastern Connecticut teenagers killed in a car crash have been laid to rest, and funeral services have been set for a fourth.

A fifth teenager remained hospitalized Sunday with serious injuries.

The teens, all students at Griswold High School, were in a car that struck a tree Tuesday in their hometown. The crash remains under investigation.

Funeral services were held Saturday for Sativa Cornell, Dillon Clifford and John Clapper. They were each 16 years old. Services are scheduled Tuesday for 15-year-old Steven Szklarz.

The lone survivor, 16-year-old Joel Gallup, remained hospitalized in a medically induced coma at Yale-New Haven Hospital. His father says he has many broken bones, but seems to be stabilizing.
