The investigation also revealed that there were five occupants of the SUV at the time of the crash, all presumably under the age of 18. ​​The SUV’s driver, a teenage girl, was found dead in the vehicle. The four surviving occupants, three of which were ejected onto the ground, were transported to a hospital where they are being treated for serious injuries.

The occupants of the Honda and Chevy are uninjured, per the statement.

The operator of that SUV was uninjured and spoke with investigators, per a statement from the Worcester police.
