Four members of the Mainland Regional High School football team in New Jersey were killed yesterday afternoon in a one car accident while en route to an organized team meal.
It is reported that the SUV the teens were riding in crested a hill on the Garden State Parkway and encountered sudden and unexpected heavy traffic. The driver slammed on the brakes and swerved causing the vehicle to roll several times.

The Associated Press has confirmed that the driver was 17-year-old Casey Brenner. Edgar Bozzi, Dean Khoury, and Nick Conner were the other three killed. No one in the SUV was over the age of 17.
Grief counselors were made available for any teenagers affected by the tragedy, and a candlelight vigil took place at the school's football field earlier this evening.
