Authorities say a weekend crash in Sussex County has killed a teenage girl and left three other teens hospitalized.
Lexi Faye was a passenger in a car that was traveling on Greendale Road in Fredon when it left the roadway and crashed around 5:35 p.m. Saturday. The 17-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.
The car's driver, 17-year-old Anthony Burke, and two other passengers - 16-year-old Maria Fiore and 17-year-old Nicholas Chavarria - were all injured in the crash. They were being treated at hospitals for undisclosed injuries, but further details on their conditions were not disclosed.
Students at Newton High School, which Faye attended, tied a white ribbon with her name around a tree outside the school as they mourn the loss. School officials have brought in counselors and a therapy dog to help the students cope.
Newton School Superintendent Ken Greene says that the entire school district is in mourning.
“Lexi’s mother Joan is a board member and a very active parent in our district and they have three other children – one at the high school, one at the middle school and one in the elementary school,” says Greene.
Faye was a stat keeper for the high school lacrosse team. Players on the team say that she was a happy person and will be dearly missed.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
