Central Pa. high school mourns loss of 5 students killed in crash

    The names of the five high school students who were killed in an accident in the central part of the state Monday have been released by school officials and the Adams County Coroner’s Office.

    The accident happened only two miles away from New Oxford High School, where the students attended around 3 p.m. Monday afternoon.

    According to The Patriot-News, the victims of the crash were identified by the school as Oscar Banda, Anthony Campos, Diego Aguilar, Casey Sheridan and Chelsea McFalls.

    According to The Patriot-News, the car the students were traveling in crossed into the southbound lanes of Route 94 and collided with a pickup truck.

    The four people inside of the pickup truck, which the Associated Press says included an 8-month old boy, were not injured.

    Counselors were scheduled to be made available to students of the Conewago Valley School District.
