BRISTOL TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A tragic accident Sunday night killed a Bucks County teenager and seriously injured four of his friends.

Police said that the driver, John Farber, 17, was speeding and lost control on Bristol Pike in Bristol Township.

Two carloads of teenagers were driving southbound on Route 13 just before 11 p.m. Sunday when Farber, who was driving a Mustang, lost control.

Police said that nobody in the Mustang was wearing a seat belt. All five teenagers were injured and Mickey Teranto died of his injuries.

"Mickey was one of the nicest kids I've ever met in my life. Best friends with my youngest son. He would give you the shirt off his back. He was a happy-go-lucky kid," said David Wolfinger, the father of one of Teranto's friends.

"We always called him our third son because he was with us all the time. He would come over, he would sleep over, he'd eat over, he went on vacations with us," said Marlene Wolfinger.

Taranto and 16-year-old Tara Walp were thrown from the vehicle when the driver lost control, hit the guardrail and slammed into a ditch.

Bristol Township police said Farber swerved to miss a cardboard box in the roadway and lost control of the vehicle.

Police said that another carload of friends was following the Mustang and witnessed the accident.

"They were going faster than the speed limit. We don't have an exact speed at this time," said a police officer.

Rescue crews had to cut free three other victims trapped inside the car. Christopher Cullen, 16, Anthony Duponte, 16, are in serious condition.

Farber was transported to St. Mary Medical Center in Middletown, Pa., in critical condition.
