VERSAILLES, Ind. (March 7, 2013)—Three teenagers who had just left a school function died Thursday when the two pickup trucks in which they were riding collided at a rural intersection in southeastern Indiana, state police said.
Sgt. Noel Houze says the crash Thursday morning involved six students from South Ripley High School in Versailles, Ind., a small community about 45 miles west of Cincinnati.
Houze says the students had just left a Future Farmers of America event at a rural church when at least one of the drivers ran a stop sign.
He said the larger of the two pickups hit the driver's side door of the other truck.
A girl and two boys died at the scene.
They were identified late Thursday afternoon as Timothy Bowman, 17, and his passenger, Jacob Vogel, 18, and a passenger in the other truck, Samantha Hanson, 18.
The other three were taken to University Hospital in Cincinnati.
Houze didn't know how seriously they were hurt.
