The 17-year-old driver of a Ford Mustang that crashed early Saturday in Wise County, killing four of his passengers, remained in serious condition Sunday at a Fort Worth hospital.
Danny Ray Nalley of Fort Worth was in John Peter Smith Hospital, where he has been since his car collided with a Ford F-350.
Killed in the crash were Kevin Brickey, 19, of Blue Mound, and Vincent "Vinnie" Williams, 19, of Wakefield, Mass. On Sunday a third victim was identified as Vincent James LaGrassa, 19, of Fort Worth. A fourth victim had not been identified Sunday by the Tarrant County medical examiner's office.
Nalley and Brickey graduated in June from Saginaw High School, where Nalley played football, according to an Eagle Mountain-Saginaw school official.

The driver of the pickup, Richard Glenn Rand, 30, of Burleson, was taken to a hospital, but his injuries were not considered life-threatening.
A Texas Department of Public Safety trooper said Sunday that the crash occurred when Nalley passed in a no-passing zone and crashed into the pickup on Farm Road 730 in Wise County, north of Decatur and about 50 miles north of Fort Worth.
"Additional factors may arise later as the investigation progresses," DPS trooper Lonny Haschel said in an e-mail Sunday.
The teens were returning from a party at the LBJ Grasslands, and Nalley was trying to pass a group of friends, relatives of LaGrassa said Sunday.
The crash was reported shortly before 3:30 a.m. Saturday on the farm road near the intersection with County Road 2445.
Rand told DPS troopers that he was northbound on Farm Road 730 when a southbound Mustang moved into the northbound lane. The Mustang and the pickup swerved into a ditch and collided.
