CHESTER, Md. (April 11, 2013)--Four young men were killed and another was injured in a two-vehicle collision on Maryland's Eastern Shore, authorities said.
Queen Anne's County sheriff's spokesman Dale Patrick said the accident occurred at around 4 p.m. Wednesday near Chester, Md.
Patrick says the four victims, who were in their late teens and early 20s, were in one vehicle and the driver of the second vehicle survived.
Patrick says the driver was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.
The condition of the driver was not immediately available.
The spokesman says speed appears to have been a factor in the head-on collision, but said the crash was still under investigation.
The identities of the victims were not released pending notification of family members.
