Two Bel Air High School students were killed in a single-vehicle crash near Kingsville Friday night, according to Baltimore County police.
The crash occurred at approximately 11:25 p.m. at the intersection of Mt. Vista Road and Gontrum Road when a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse left the roadway and struck a tree, according to the Baltimore County Police Department.
The driver and passenger of the vehicle, both 16-year-old Bel Air High School students, were killed. The cause of the accident remained under investigation Saturday afternoon.
Harford County Public Schools spokeswoman Jillian Lader said the school’s Homecoming dance, scheduled for Saturday night, would proceed as planned. Counselors would be present for any students wishing to speak with them, she said.
The crash occurred several hours after Bel Air defeated Perryville at its homecoming game.
