UPDATE: Three Teens Killed in Clark County Crash Identified

CLARK COUNTY -- A community mourns three Tecumseh High School students killed Wednesday morning.

The fatal crash split the car in two when their car slammed into a tree.

Maines Towing crews worked all afternoon picking up the final pieces by hand of the 2010 Hyundai Sonata. Now all that remains at the crash site on Ridge Road is a cross decorated with messages of grief and love.

Those messages are for 17-year-old Daniel Tittle of Medway, 15 year-old Wesley Culpepper of Huber Heights, and 16-year-old Charles Luthe of Springfield.

Jacob Roles is a junior at Tecumseh and was in ROTC with Luthe for the last two years. He joined nearly a hundred others Wednesday at Tecumseh High School to remember his friend.

"I will gladly pay my respects to him for being ROTC and a fallen cadet, basically, in my eyes," Roles said. "He was a good, hard-loving kid. He loved to have a good time. He just wanted to go on with his day like everyone else does."

But Wednesday morning, the day and three lives were cut short when troopers say the friends were speeding at 6 a.m. when the car struck a tree.

The car was torn in half upon impact. The three boys died instantly.

It's a loss that won't be felt in the halls of Tecumseh High until students return from spring break on Monday.

"I 'll miss him. It's gonna be tough being in school and not seeing Danny's car around, at home, not seeing any of them," Roles added.

Troopers say they haven't yet determined who was driving the car or where the teens were headed. The crash remains under investigation.

CLARK COUNTY -- Three people have died in a crash that split a car in two.

The victims have been identified as 16-year-old Charles Luthe of Springfield, 17-year-old Daniel Tittle of Medway and 15 year-old Wesley Culpepper of Huber Heights.

Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers say that about 5:55 a.m., the 2010 Hyundai Sonata left Ridge Road, near State Route 41, and struck a tree. The vehicle was torn in half upon impact, troopers say.

"None of the occupants were wearing seat belts," troopers said, "although with the severity of the crash, seat belt usage would not have helped."

Troopers say they haven't yet determined who was driving the car and the crash remains under investigation.

Responding to this type of scene makes me hug my children harder," OSP Lt. Brian Aller said. "The tragic and senseless loss of these young men is devastating for not only their families, but the Tecumseh School System and entire Springfield community."

Ridge Road reopened about 1 p.m. Wednesday.
