Hilton HS student killed, another injured in Sunday crash

A fatal crash in Greece claimed the life of an 18-year-old Hilton High School student Sunday night.

Greece, N.Y. (WHAM) - Multiple police and fire crews were on scene of a fatal car crash that took place in Greece Sunday night.

This is on Latta Road between Flynn Road and Dominic Way.

Greece Police Chief Patrick Phelan said a car carrying two 18-year-olds crashed head-on into a SUV driven by a 64-year-old woman.

The teen passenger died; the driver is battling serious injuries at the hospital.

Phelan said the driver of the car with the teens somehow lost control before hitting the SUV. Police say the teen driving may have been distracted by a person in another vehicle, but that was still under investigation.

The 64-year-old woman driving the SUV suffered minor injuries.

Both teenagers are students at Hilton High School.

An emotional Chief Phelan couldn't find the words to describe the scene.

"You don’t, you don’t," said Phelan. "It’s two weeks from graduation. You don’t.”

Police have Latta Rd. between Flynn Rd. and Dominic Way shut down overnight as they investigate.
