BELLBROOK, Ohio (AP) -- Authorities in southwest Ohio say they don't think drugs or alcohol played a role in a weekend crash that killed three high school students and injured three others.
Family members of the Bellbrook High School students told The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/SPYa2g) that the teens were coming back from picking up one of their classmates from a party early Sunday.
Shortly afterward, the truck left the road and crashed into a tree, killing 14-year-old Julianna Hawk, 17-year-old Sophie Kerrigan and 16-year-old Skylar Kooken. The other three students in the Dodge extended-cab pickup were injured, with one still in serious condition Monday.
The force of the collision uprooted the full-grown tree and buckled and mangled the truck. The accident remains under investigation.
