Family and friends gathered Wednesday to remember the two young men struck and killed this weekend along Interstate 40.

Hundreds filled the parking lots at the West End Shopping Center to raise money for the families of 20-year-old Jake Jennings, 21-year-old Josh Hensley and 19-year-old Brittany Branch.

Organizers sold t-shirts with the slogan "Two for the Big Garage in the Sky" in memory of Jennings and Hensley.

"There's multiple companies that come together to kind of donate and help raise some money for the families. So everything tonight that's sold is being dispersed among the three families," said Louie Garza.

Organizers have also set up an online fundraiser to support the three families.

Police say 20-year-old Francisco Rodriguez lost control of his car. He hit Jennings, Josh Hensley, and Brittany Branch. Hensley and Jennings both died at the scene, and Branch suffered serious injuries. University of Tennessee Medical Center listed Branch as serious Thursday morning.

Rodriguez faces several charges including vehicular homicide.
