LAWRENCE, MA – Three teenagers were injured, and an 18-year-old teenager lost her life after their SUV hit another vehicle before catching fire before 9:30 p.m. Thursday.
NBC-2 said the driver of the SUV — 18-year-old Brenna Caisse, a senior at North Andover High School — drifted into the same lane on I-495 as a Dodge Ram pickup truck with an attached camper, colliding with it.
After this collision, Caisse then crashed into a guard rail. The force of the collision caused her SUV to overturn. Then it caught on fire, and one of the passengers from her vehicle — a 17-year-old girl — was ejected from the automobile.
Caisse was pronounced dead at the scene. The girl who was ejected, along with the two other SUV occupants — 16-year-old girls (also North Andover High School students) — were taken to Lawrence General Hospital for treatment of minor wounds.
Officials also said that the Dodge Ram motorist did not suffer any “apparent serious injuries.” However, they have not confirmed if they were actually unharmed.
Massachusetts State Police have launched an investigation and have not shared other information at this point in time.
