Five kids were killed in a fiery overnight car accident in New York, including the 16-year-old driver of the vehicle.

Authorities in Scarsdale, New York, said the kids were traveling on the Hutchinson River Parkway early Sunday morning when the Nissan Rogue they were driving in crashed into a tree and caught on fire.

Five children between the ages of 8 and 17 died in the crash, while a 9-year-old boy survived and was taken to Westchester Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Police said the 9-year-old was sitting in a hatchback/cargo area at the time of the crash and was able to escape through the rear of the vehicle.

Police said that there were no other vehicles involved in the accident which occurred on Sunday around 12:20 a.m. There were four males and one female in the vehicle.

Westchester County PD tweeted Sunday, “Five young people from Connecticut were killed this morning in a crash on the Hutchinson River Parkway. Our condolences to the loved ones of those who lost their lives in this tragic incident.”

  1. We have never allowed our 16-year-olds to drive with anyone in the car. They’re still so inexperienced. This is so sad for these families!!

  2. There have been a lot of single car accidents lately. Maybe the young driver had a medical emergency behind the wheel.

  3. So horrific! In California 16 year olds aren’t allowed to have passengers in the car, but there are some provisions. Why were there little children in the car? So sad. RIP
