Three young adults died when a car crashed into a tree in Olney, Md. early Sunday morning.
Officials report Spencer Datt, 18, of Derwood, was pronounced dead at the scene. Two others Haeley N. McGuire, 18, and John Hoover, 20, both of Rockville, were announced dead at a local hospital.
Police say the driver, 20-year-old Kevin Coffay lost control of the car they were in around 3 a.m. Sunday. It went off the road and struck a tree.
Officers say he left the scene before they arrived. He was later arrested three hours later at his home.
McGuire was a senior at Magruder High School in Rockville, Md. Datt and Hoover were graduates of the high school.
In talking with students this morning who are arriving to school, they say this comes as a shock and very devastating news, especially since it's winding down to the end of the school year.
A spokesperson for Montgomery County Public Schools says counselors will be on-hand today to speak with students who are grieving.
