High school mourns 15-year-old killed in weekend crash
WEYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — Students at a Catholic school in Braintree are mourning the loss of a classmate following a single car accident.
Archbishop Williams High School held a prayer service for 15-year-old Kate McCarthy Monday and several classmates later left flowers and other remembrances at the crash site in Weymouth.
The sophomore from Weymouth died after the SUV she was riding in with three other classmates veered off the road Saturday night.
McCarthy and another girl were ejected after the vehicle crashed into a telephone pole, parked cars and a tree. The three others in the vehicle, who have not been identified other than as fellow sophomores, were hospitalized and are expected to recover.
The Norfolk County district attorney’s office says no charges have yet been filed. The crash remains under investigation.
