OSWEGO, N.Y. (AP) - Police in central New York are trying to determine what caused a car to crash on a rural road, killing all four young men in the vehicle.
The Oswego County Sheriff's Office says a highway worker found the overturned vehicle Tuesday morning down an embankment along a road in the town of Oswego. Deputies say the car left the road, became airborne and hit a tree before landing on its roof.
Police say the crash occurred near the home of the driver, 19-year-old Joseph McCarthy.
Also killed were 20-year-old James Stone, 23-year-old Efrain Rodriguez and 23-year-old Joshua Schute, all from the nearby town of Granby.
Deputies believe the crash occurred sometime Monday night, when conditions were clear and dry. Police believe speed may have been a factor in the crash.
