Brunswick, Ohio – A community is mourning the loss of four teens who were killed in a car accident shortly before their high school’s graduation ceremony was set to take place. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the fourth student, one of two who were set to graduate on the day of the accident, died of his injuries following reports that three of the students were killed in the rollover crash that occurred Sunday.

The death of Kevin Fox was announced in a statement released by The MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland early Monday. The other students killed in the car accident were Jeffrey Chaya, Blake Bartchak, 17, and Lexi Poerner, 16. Another student, Julia Romito, 17, also sustained injuries in the accident, but information has reportedly not yet been released about her condition.

The Fox family is quoted by the AP as releasing a statement saying, “We are grateful for the overwhelming support that the northeast Ohio community has given our family during this difficult time.”
