Three other students were hurt in a collision that occurred on Thursday night on Interstate 495 in Lawrence, Massachusetts, which resulted in the death of a North Andover high school student, according to police and school authorities.
The Massachusetts State Police said that the driver, who was eighteen, passed away after being struck by other cars on the highway. Three teens who were riding in the SUV suffered minor injuries; one of them, a 17-year-old, was thrown from the vehicle by the driver.
Superintendent of North Andover Public Schools Gregg Gilligan said in a statement on Friday that the driver was Brenna Caisse, a 12th grader at North Andover High School, and that the other three occupants of the vehicle were also students.
“This is a tragedy for the Caisse family, our school, and the North Andover community. Our thoughts are with the Caisse family and the families of the other students involved in the accident,” North Andover High School Principal Chet Jackson said in a statement, noting Caisse’s “tremendous connections with staff and students.”
On Saturday, the high school was scheduled to open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. so that staff and students could come in for counseling. According to Jackson, further counseling services will be offered on Monday.
