    Wednesday's crash took the lives of two teens, and injured three more.

    The Santee Sheriffs station is now conducting pre-planned curfew sweeps during peak periods in an effort to prevent devastating accidents like the one Wednesday night.

    Jayli Campbell and Anthony Foreman were killed in a crash on Highway 52. CHP officials says two cars full of teenagers were racing, when one of the cars flipped.

    Friends and family of the two men held a vigil last night at Santana High School, where Jayli attended.

    Medical examiners have identified the two boys who died in the accident as 18-year-old Anthony Foreman and 16-year-old Jayli James Campbell. The two lived in Santee.

    Sheriff's deputies will conduct the sweep in the communities of Santee, Lakeside, and unincorporated El Cajon.

    The Sheriff's Station said the purpose of the curfew sweep is to enforce the laws. However the decision to conduct it was triggered by Wednesday night's "senseless deaths," the station said in a statement.

    "For many students, spring break is a carefree time away from classroom pressures," read a statement from the station. "Unfortunately, for many it is also a time of excessive drinking and using drugs, and those dangerous activities can lead to fatalities and serious injuries."

    Deputies will also be enforcing the "social host" ordinance, which punishes adults for hosting underage drinking parties.

    Authorities in the North County are also cracking down on the ordinance during many schools' spring breaks.
