Friends and classmates of three Fontana boys killed in a high-speed car chase will hold a car wash Saturday to raise money for funeral services.

Carwash2_keb4cdnc The three boys -- Devon Keeten, 15; his younger brother, Daylan Green, 9; and his best friend, Moses Guzman, 11 -- were killed Wednesday as they were fleeing from a California Highway Patrol officer in a car driven by Devon. Devon, an eighth-grader at Wayne Ruble Middle School, was driving more than 90 mph and crashed into a Fontana home.

At a vigil held at the courtyard of the condominium complex where the boys grew up, Devon and Daylan's mother, Lillian Green, held hands with Moses' parents as they thanked well-wishers for their support.

The car wash will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Ruben's Market on Barbee Street and Sierra Avenue. Friends have established a fund to help Devon's and Daylan's family; donations may be sent to Tomeka George, at 5015 Galliano Ave., Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91739. Moses' family did not request donations.
