WEYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) - A 16-year-old Massachusetts teen is facing charges after crashing an SUV, killing one passenger and injuring two others.

Weymouth Police announced Wednesday they are issuing a citation for “motor vehicle homicide by negligent operation” to an unidentified male teen following a single car crash on Saturday. He’s also being cited for speeding and violating a restriction on having passengers under 18 in his car.

Police have declined to identify the driver because he’s a minor. A hearing before a clerk magistrate in Quincy District Court will be scheduled.

The four students involved in the crash were sophomores at Archbishop Williams, a Catholic high school in Braintree. Kate McCarthy, 15, died after being ejected from the vehicle, which crashed into a telephone pole, parked cars and a tree.


This story has been corrected to reflect that the accident happened April 9, not April 19.
