    A woman who identified herself as the aunt of the Courtney Cox, the 19-year-old driver that was killed in a single car crash, is searching for the motorists that helped out at the crash scene.

    Candance Sherman wrote in a Facebook post on Monday asking for the community's help in locating the people she credits for saving the lives of the five other people -- all teens -- critically injured in the crash. 

    "My niece who was driving died on scene but, my daughter's life along with the other 4 surviving children were saved by passing motorists who stopped to help," Sherman said.

    Five other occupants of the vehicle -- ranging in ages from 16 to 14 -- were badly hurt and listed in critical condition. 

    "They deserve to be recognized for what they have done," Sherman said.
