Three students died in a late-night crash Tuesday in Damascus on the eve of Clarksburg High School graduation.
According to Montgomery County Police, the teens were traveling south on Burnt Hill Road around 11:30 p.m. in a Ford F-250 near Kingstead Road when the truck left the road and struck a tree.
The 17-year-old driver and an 18-year-old passenger in the front seat died at the scene of the accident. Another 17-year-old passenger was taken to Suburban Hospital where he later died from his injuries.
The accident is under investigation as police try to determine what caused the vehicle to leave the road. Those with information are encouraged to call the Collision Reconstruction unit at (240) 773-6620.
Police have noted that there is some evidence that the teens had just left what may have been a nearby graduation party.
According to Montgomery County Public Schools, the three teens were all juniors at Clarksburg High School, which is closed Wednesday for a graduation ceremony to be held at Mount St. Mary’s University.
