PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) - Kitsap County prosecutors have charged a 17-year-old driver with three counts of vehicular homicide in a weekend rollover crash that killed three Olympic High School students.

The Kitsap Sun reports (https://is.gd/hu0Guy ) that Deputy Prosecutor Julie Gaffney says the Bremerton boy told sheriff’s deputies that he was driving 75 mph in a 45-mph zone and had smoked marijuana about an hour before the 3 a.m. Sunday crash.

The newspaper says the teen has an intermediate driver’s license, which prohibits him from driving between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. He suffered minor injuries.

Killed were 14-year-old Jenna Farley, 16-year-old Kassidy Clark and 18-year-old Luther Stoudermire.

The driver appeared Monday in juvenile court and was released to his mother’s custody.

He will appear Jan. 26 in Superior Court for a hearing on whether he should be tried as an adult.

About 400 people gathered Monday night for a candlelight vigil in front of the high school.
