BREAKING: At Least 4 DEAD In This State… Here’s What We Know

“Three people had been pronounced dead at the scene, one person was taken to the Brockton hospital and was pronounced dead there,” Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz told Boston 25 News.

Cruz identified the victims on Sunday as classmates Christopher Desir, Eric Sarblah and David Bell, all 17 years old, and 16-year-old Nick Joyce.

FOX News reports that the driver of the vehicle, who is also 17, is still being treated for his injuries at Boston Medical Center. His name has not yet been released by authorities.

Stoughton Public Schools said in a letter posted to Twitter that all five teenagers in the car went to Stoughton High School.

In a statement Saturday, Stoughton Public Schools Superintendent Marguerite Rizzi said that the community had experienced a tragedy, and said “there are no words to articulate the impact of this loss.”

“This is a shock and a trauma for our entire community,” Rizzi said. “It will not make sense because it does not make sense. For students, especially those who know the classmates involved in the crash, you will likely feel confused, angry, and sad, and sometimes all at the same time. You are not alone in your grief and you should not feel alone. Know that the adults in our community will feel the same way.”

Here’s some footage of the scene from  at Boston 25 News.

Authorities had to use multiple sets of the Jaws of Life extraction tool to remove the teenagers from the crumpled vehicle, according to The Enterprise newspaper.

Authorities are now investigating if speed and the rain may have been contributing factors in the deadly crash. Investigators still haven’t confirmed how fast the car was going, and were working on Saturday to reconstruct the accident scene.
