"PrayforOScott" is now a top trend on Twitter in metro Detroit.  Prayer requests are spreading across the social media network like wildfire to pray for Lake Orion teen Olivia Scott, who was involved in a brutal car crash Monday afternoon that hospitalized five Lake Orion teens.

Police say the accident happened at the intersection of Adams and Clarkston roads in Oakland Township.

We're told a 16-year-old female driver was traveling westbound on Clarkston Road in a blue 2006 Saturn Ion.  Police say she ran a stop sign and was hit on the driver's side by a woman driving a Dodge Nitro traveling with a one-year-old child.

All five teens in the car were rushed to the hospital.  One was taken by Life Flight.  Two teens were in critical condition.

"People do go through here fast because they usually are coming to and from school," said Alisha Bucan.  "I'll just need to pay more attention and just slow down and just know that you've got to watch out."

Shards of broken glass and car parts in the road are subtle reminders of the preciousness of life.  Now all the community can do is hope and pray.
