LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Nearly 100 family members and friends attended a candlelight vigil held Sunday to honor the life of Berlin Cole, who was killed in a car crash late Friday night. 

Cole played lacrosse for Male High School. 

Those who attended the vigil said Cole was the man who was killed on South Hurstbourne Parkway while riding a motorcycle Friday just before 11:30 p.m. 

Witnesses told police the motorcyclist was speeding when a car turned in front of him. 

Cole was pronounced dead at the scene. 

"I'm broken. My family will never be the same. I don't know how I"m going to move forward because he was my heart. But, if there was anyway that it had to be, it was the way he loved it and I can find peace in that," Cole's mother, Elane Cole, said. 

The driver of the other vehicle involved in he accident was treated for minor injuries.
