A car crashed into an occupied home in Peoria just after midnight on Sunday, leaving two people dead and several others hurt.

Peoria Police say that a car went through a stop sign and crashed into a block wall and a home near Vistancia Boulevard and Lone Mountain Parkway on April 14.

Six people were inside the car at the time of the crash.

Shane Johnson, a 20-year-old Tempe resident, died at the scene. Nineteen-year-old Aiden Ellis of Peoria died at the hospital.

Three other people remain hospitalized, and the sixth person is said to have been released from the hospital.

No one inside the house was hurt. 

"My friends called me, and I just came out. I see somebody just rammed the house. Looks like there was a casualty and death, so it's pretty shocking and surprising to see this in the neighborhood because it's a pretty quiet neighborhood," a resident in the area said.

As friends of Shane and Aiden gather at the crash site, a memorial grows in their honor.

GoFundMe accounts have been set up to help Zalia, who is one of the victims, and Aiden.
