Four Dallastown Area High School students suffered injuries Tuesday afternoon when the car they were in crashed into a home in Springfield Township, just west of Nixon County Park.

State police said it happened at 4:32 p.m., when the driver of the southbound car lost control for unknown reasons.

The car rolled several times and crashed into a house in the 6000 block of Reynolds Mill Road, according to state police.

Two of the four male occupants of the car are 17 years old, the other two are 16 and 18 years old, state police said.

The 16-year-old was thrown from the car and was seriously injured, according to police. The other three students' injuries were believed to be minor, police said.

All four teens were taken to York Hospital by ambulance, according to police.

The crash remains under investigation, state police said.

3 in hospital: Troy Fisher, director of human resources for the school district, said three of the four students remained hospitalized Wednesday.

Of the four, three are seniors and one is a junior, he said.

He said the district is in communication with the families of all four students, but he said he cannot release much more information yet out of respect for their privacy.

Fisher said counseling has been made available to students at the high school.

Fire and rescue personnel remained on scene until about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday to assist police, according to a post on the Facebook page of Goodwill Fire Co. No. 1 in Jacobus.
