3 Students Killed In Rollover Crash In Southeastern Arizona

Authorities say three Arizona high school students enrolled in an automotive technology program have been killed in a crash while returning from a professional drag racing event near Phoenix.

Eastern Arizona College officials say the students were enrolled in a joint education program and considered part-time college students.

Authorities say two 16-year-old boys and a 17-year-old boy were ejected and killed when a college van went off a rural highway and rolled Friday night.

The driver and five other students suffered injuries that weren't life-threatening. The group was returning from a National Hot Rod Association event in a Phoenix suburb.
