BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Officials say counselors will be on hand at a Birmingham high school following a car crash that killed three students after prom.
A statement from Birmingham’s city school system says the crisis team will be at Parker High School on Monday to help both students and staff members following the crash.
A car went out of control at an intersection, struck a utility pole and caught fire early Sunday in the Birmingham suburb of Homewood. Officials say three male Parker students were killed, but the victims’ names haven’t been released.
The school held its prom Saturday night, and the school system confirms that the three victims were students. But it’s unclear whether they had been to the event or other, related events.
