Car packed with teens crashes, injuring nine



STRATFORD -- A car packed with nine teens – two of them in the trunk – crashed close to here early Saturday morning.

The car rolled after the driver lost control, landed upright and narrowly missed a tree, police said.

All nine occupants, aged 15 to 18, were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. They were treated for head and neck injuries, said EMS spokesman Jeff Sager.

Seven ambulances rushed to the scene and paramedics transported the injured youth to hospital.

The large number of victims in this crash brings back memories of the tragedy that occurred in February 2012 when 10 foreign workers from Latin America and one London truck driver were killed when they collided at an intersection.
