Fourth teen dies after Ohio crash that happened hours before his high school graduation

BRUNSWICK, Ohio — An 18-year-old high school senior has died of injuries suffered in a weekend car crash just hours before his graduation, raising the death toll to four students. A fifth student was injured.

A car carrying Kevin Fox and four other teenagers went airborne, crashed and flipped over onto its roof at a railroad crossing early Sunday.

The Lorain County coroner said Monday that the cause of death of the three other students killed in the crash was multiple trauma with head and neck injuries. Coroner Dr. Stephen Evans said no evidence was found of drug or alcohol use.

Fox and 18-year-old driver Jeffrey Chaya had been scheduled to graduate from Brunswick High School on Sunday afternoon. Chaya was among those killed.
