The Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office offered their condolences and said the teens killed in the crash attended Billings West High School:

The Yellowstone County Sheriff’s Office would like to send our thoughts and prayers to all those effected this past weekend by the fatal motor vehicle crash involving three West High students.
There are a bunch of Golden Bears here at the Sheriff’s Office, but when an event like this happens, whether you are a Falcon, Bronc, Ram, Locomotive, Mustang, or a Red Devil, it hurts. To the sole survivor, we wish you a speedy recovery.
Words cannot express the sorrow we are all dealing with at this time. Search out friends and lean on each other during these tough times. Life is a gift, and you must seize the day, every day until your heart no longer beats.
