On Sunday morning, five kids were killed in a wreck in Scarsdale, New York. The incident occurred on the Hutchinson River Parkway.
Close to 12:20 a.m., a Nissan Rogue went off the road, hit a tree, and caught on fire.
The driver of the vehicle was only 16, and his tearful father said that his son shouldn’t have been driving. He didn’t have a license, and his family had warned him about driving unlawfully.
Not only did the 16-year-old boy lose his life, but three other males and a female, ages 8-17, also died. A 9-year-old who survived had been in the trunk and exited out of the back.
Authorities say that the 9-year-old boy was sent to a medical facility with non-life threatening injuries. He is the only person who lived.
No other cars were involved in the accident, and an investigation is ongoing.
