PIEDMONT, SC (FOX Carolina) -

An Anderson County teen was killed after authorities said she lost control of her vehicle and crashed Saturday morning.

Wren High School student Lacee Dial was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident on Elrod Road. She was 17 years old.  

Friends of the teen held a prayer vigil at Wren High School Sunday night, and a memorial has been created at the scene of the crash.

Lacee's friends said this tragedy simply isn't fair, she was taken too young. However, they said they're confident that it happened for a reason and she's making a difference in others' lives even after her death.

Friends told FOX Carolina Lacee had a big love for horses and everything country.

"She'd have her cowgirl boots on one day, then wear a camo shirt, then dress up the next day," said Ferron Jones. "Always had a big smile on her face, that's how you knew that's Lacee."

Friends also said she was a very spiritual teen and that's helping many cope with her loss.

"We talked about the Lord and growing stronger in our faith, that keeps replaying through my mind," said Carson McCoy.  

They say although the teen has passed on, her presence is still felt.

Lacee's accident happened at about 11 a.m. on Saturday. Highway Patrol is still investigating the incident. There's no word yet on when funeral services will be held.
