Three girls died and four other minors were injured in a car crash in Port Salerno, according to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office.
12-year-old Mary Cann and 15-year old Veronica Palms died at the scene of the crash. 10-year-old Deborah Carrywhite died at Martin Health Medical Center. All were residents of Port Salerno.
FHP Deputies said, a 24-year-old man was driving a 2007 Toyota with seven minors in the car, when he lost control on the 1200 block of Northwest 15th Street.
The car then veered off the road, hit a Toyota Corolla and a metal pole the railroad tracks crossing arms, and rolled over landing upside down on the tracks, according to the sheriff’s office.
Investigators said, the car was reported stolen from Coconut Creek.
The remaining four teens, ranging from ages 13 to 17, were taken to a hospital in Jensen Beach for varying degrees of injuries, the Martin County Sheriff office said.
Three people in the Corolla were also listed in critical condition.
Florida Highway Patrol Deputies are still investigating the main cause of the wreck and urges those with relevant information concerning the crash to contact the FHP department.
