SOMERVILLE (AP) – State Police say a second teenager has died as a result of a car crash in Somerville.
State Police Sgt. Michael Popovics confirmed Sunday that the girl, who was identified as a 17-year-old from Somerville, died, but he did not know when.
State police have said alcohol and speed contributed to the crash early Friday morning that killed a 16-year-old Everett girl.
Four other people in the car, including the driver, sustained minor injuries in the crash at about 3:30 a.m. Friday.
The driver, identified by police as 21-year-old Kenneth Belew of Somerville faces charges, including drunken driving.
Belew apparently lost control on the elevated portion of the McGrath Highway southbound over Washington Street and struck a concrete barrier. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Somerville District Court on Friday.
