It has been one year since the tragic crash that took the lives of five teenagers on Top Golf Way in Lee County.

Eric Paul, 19; Jackson Eyre, 18; Amanda Ferguson, 18; Breanna Coleman, 18; and Jesus Salinas, 18. These are five teenagers who will never get to grow up.

Four of the five teens worked at Texas Roadhouse. On Tuesday, the restaurant made sure their loved ones had a place to grieve.

They even decorated a table in their honor.

“Families came in, friends of families came in, anybody that was affected by this was more than welcome to come in,” said Christian Carlston. “We opened our doors early to them, broke bread, had food, and everything set up for them set a whole section of the restaurant aside for them.”

The restaurant also passed out pins to the teen’s families and former employees.
