The Granby community is mourning the loss of four young men killed in a single car crash in Hannibal.

Deputies have identified the driver as 19-year-old Joey McCarthy. The passengers were identified as 20-year-old James Stone, 23-year-old Efrain Rodriguez and 23-year-old Joshua Schute. All of them were from Granby.

The crash happened along Engles Road near Rathburn Road Monday night, but their bodies weren't found until Tuesday morning. Deputies say a highway worker stumbled upon the crash scene around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Investigators say speed was a factor in the crash. They say McCarthy lost control and became airborne before slamming into a tree and flipping on its roof.
