VERSAILLES, Ind. (AP) -- Police investigating a collision that killed three Indiana teenagers say the intersection where the crash occurred is flat with no visual obstructions.
State Police Sgt. Noel Houze said Friday the roads at the rural intersection where two pickup trucks collided are straight and there are no trees or other nearby obstructions.
He says officers investigating Thursday's southeastern Indiana crash haven't determined how fast the trucks were traveling, but speed appears to be a factor because of the extent of the damage to the vehicles.
The two trucks carrying six students from South Ripley High School in Versailles collided Thursday morning and careened 100 feet into an adjacent field.
Eighteen-year-old Samantha Hanson, 17-year-old Timothy Bowman and 18-year-old Jacob Vogel died and three other students were hospitalized. Their conditions haven't been disclosed.
