Toxicology Results from Triple Fatality Crash on Ridge Road
CLARK COUNTY -- The toxicology reports have been released in the March 26 crash that killed three Tecumseh High School teens, and troopers are continuing to investigate the incident.
The crash killed 17-year-old Daniel Tittle of Medway, 15-year-old Wesley Culpepper of Huber Heights and 16-year-old Charles Luthe of Springfield.
According to the Montgomery County Coroner's Office, Tittle's blood-alcohol was .218, Luthe's was .108 and Culpepper's urine alcohol content was .124. The legal blood alcohol limit for an adult is .08.
Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers say the car in which the three teens were traveling veered off the right side of northbound Ridge Road, crossed back left of the enter, left the road and crashed into a tree. The collision caused the car to be torn in half and the boys died at the scene. Troopers say none of them were wearing seat belts, although due to the severity of the crash, seat belts would not have helped.
Troopers say they still don't know who was driving the 2010 Hyundai Sonata when it crashed.
"Every time we're in our front yard we're reminded and we pray for their families, and friends, and for the other young people that they'll be so careful," said Gerri Cottrell who lives on Ridge Road. Neighbors are still shaken there.
"We're stressing to our kids the hazards of drinking and driving, the dangers of it," said Brad Martin, Superintendent of Tecumseh Schools.
Martin knows this tragedy has been a harsh lesson for the entire student body.
"We're really looking at ways we can make kids feel like they're part of the in-crowd without having to do the drugs, the alcohol, the drinking and driving."
They start kids off as early as fifth grade at the Elementary school with the D.A.R.E program. They are hoping to get that message across nice and early.
"It's a good time to get them, right before they come to middle school, middle school's when they start to be influenced easier and they get their friends or their clicks together," Martin explained.
"It was just really sad. They looked like such nice boys, and I'm sure that they really are. It's just that sometimes we get a chance to make different decisions, and sometimes we don't," Cottrell said sadly.
