Friends, classmates and family mourned the loss of a high school senior who died in a late night car accident on Saturday.

Fabian Gonzalez, 18, was a senior at Townview Center High School in Dallas. Gonzalez, better known as "Fabo" to friends, lost control of his SUV on Walton Walker Blvd. around 12:15 a.m. on Saturday.

Dallas police say he was going too fast and lost control along a curve. The SUV flipped over into the opposite traffic lane where another vehicle struck the SUV. Gonzalez died at the scene.

On Saturday night, more than 100 classmates, friends and families held a candlelight vigil to remember Gonzalez at Townview High School.

Friends say he was a DJ and was set to DJ the high school prom in two weeks. He was also an avid basketball player.

Friends wore shirts with his photo and brought signs, flowers and candles to the vigil. Classmates shared stories and Gonzalez’s parents were seen consoling one another while taking the scene in.

Gonzalez was two months from graduation and friends say he will be sorely missed.
