LOTHIAN, Md. — Anne Arundel County Police say excessive speed and alcohol may have contributed to a Friday crash that landed four teens in the hospital.
It happened around 9 p.m. on Sands Road near Whittington Drive in Lothian.
Police showed up to find a Honda Accord crashed into a tree with multiple occupants trapped.
An investigation revealed the car was speeding around a curve, when it lost control and collided with a telephone pole, which caused the car to roll and hit a tree.
Two trapped passengers, ages 15 and 16 were rescued and taken to a trauma center with life threatening injuries.
On September 29, the 16-year-old boy died from his injuries at the hospital.
The driver and another passenger, each 17, were also sent to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Anne Arundel County's Traffic Safety Section is handling the investigation and will forward the case to the State's Attorney's Office for any possible charges.
