EASTON (CBS) – A high school student, his father and the boy’s girlfriend were all killed following a head-on crash Friday night in Easton.

The crash, which happened around 6 p.m. on Depot Street, involved two SUVs.

Two people who inside a 2008 Chevy HHR died Friday. A third person was rushed to the hospital and the driver of a 2007 Toyota Sequoia was hospitalized.

On Saturday, police said the third person from the Chevy HHR died overnight.

Easton Police said William Fleming, 58, was killed in the crash along with his 17-year-old son Robert Fleming. Kayleigh Desrosiers, 17, of Halifax, was also killed.

Police have not yet determined what caused the crash but said it appears the driver of the Chevy crossed the center line and slammed into the Toyota.

Deena Fleming, who lost her husband and son in the crash, says she is devastated by the loss.

“They were loved by their family very much,” she said, emotionally. “My son was my miracle child.”

Fleming called her husband the love of her life.

Liz Perera, who witnessed the crash, said she and another witness attempted to save Kayleigh, who was in the back seat of the car at the time of the crash.

“He was going straight, he was doing fine, then all of a sudden he’s in the other lane,” Perera said. “We didn’t have a pulse on her. There was another woman who happened to be a nurse. She started chest compressions until the ambulance came.”

Kayleigh’s cousin remembers her as a beautiful person.

“She was a beautiful person inside and out,” her cousin said. “She was very caring.”

A crisis team was set up at the high school throughout the day at Oliver Ames High School Saturday for students grieving following the deadly crash.

“The loss of any life so suddenly is shocking, but the loss of three lives, two being those of teenagers and two being from the same family is simply unimaginable,” Easton Superintendent of Schools Andrew Keough said in a statement. “Our hearts go out to both families and we hope and pray that all will respect their privacy during this extremely difficult time.”
