Timaru teens are being urged to be very careful around a planned tribute for five boys who died in a car crash on the weekend.

The boys - all aged between 15 and 16 - died when an overloaded car smashed into a power pole with such force the car was split in two.

The group have been named by police as Javarney Drummond, Andrew Goodger, Niko Hill, Joseff McCarthy, and Jack Wallace.
