    The crash happened Friday around 11:30 p.m. in the 1600 block of Mira Vista Road.

    Officers said the 2016 Porsche Macan was speeding southbound when the driver struck a tree in the road's median.

    Police said Sacks and Davis died at the scene.

    Sydney Sacks said she and her sister did everything together.

    "She had such a bright future ahead of her. She wanted to be a doctor. She wanted to go to Harvard," Sydney said.

    "She was always bold and honest and always a light, always laughing," friend Kyra Cooper said about Davis.

    Police said they found Murray with serious injuries near the burning vehicle. Plano Fire-Rescue took her to the hospital.

    The Plano Police Department's traffic unit is investigating the crash.
