Funeral services will be held in New Jersey Friday for a teenager killed in a car crash last weekend.

Hundreds of mourners turned out at a wake in Bloomfield Thursday night to pay their respects to 16-year-old Christina Lembo.

Friends remember Lembo, a junior at Bloomfield High School, as a sweet, smart athlete.

Four other people were hurt in the crash, none of them seriously. The driver, Omar Baldeon, was consumed with thoughts of what, if anything, he could have done differently.

Baldeon was driving with two classmates in the car just after 11 p.m. when a black Camaro that eyewitnesses believe was drag racing with another car blind-sided him, slamming into his Honda Civic.

No charges have yet been filed. The case is expected to go to a grand jury.
