Falmouth High School Student Killed, Another Seriously Injured In Crash

FALMOUTH (CBS) – A Falmouth High School student was killed and another was seriously injured in a car crash Thursday night.

Falmouth Police responded to the single car crash in the woods off Thomas Landers Road and found two occupants trapped inside.

The driver, a 17-year-old from East Falmouth, succumbed to injuries he sustained in the crash. His passenger was flown to Rhode Island Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The Falmouth High School athletic director says the two students involved in the crash are members of the boys’ ice hockey team.

No other information has been released.
