Police have identified four of the five teenage boys involved in the deadly crash in Woodbury that left one dead and the other four injured.
Woodbury Public Safety Commander John Altman issued a press release Monday morning identifying four of the five victims, including 17-year-old Garrett Bumgarner, a passenger in the 2015 Honda Accord who was fatally ejected when it struck a tree and split in two on Settlers Ridge Parkway.
Bring Me The News does not typically identify those injured in crashes unless they have been publicly named by family or friends, and therefore will not be naming the three other 17 year olds who were ID'd by Woodbury Public Safety.
Their conditions, however, are listed as serious but stable due to a "myriad of injuries," according to police.
The driver's identity has not been released due to data practice laws, nor has the driver's condition been provided.
All of the occupants of the vehicle were students at East Ridge High School, according to the Star Tribune and KARE 11. South Washington County Schools has not confirmed those reports, though a spokesperson did confirm that "some" students were involved in the accident.
The crash was reported by numerous 911 callers at 11:08 p.m. Saturday, with Woodbury Public Safety saying the 2015 Honda Accord was split in half after striking a tree near Sundance Lane.
"As I stated yesterday on social media- there are many people that have a lot of emotion to process: moms, dads, siblings, grandparents, extended families, friends, classmates, neighbors, responders- the entire Woodbury community, really. A thorough investigation into a crash such as this takes time," Altman wrote in the release Monday.
"Here at Woodbury Public Safety, our hearts are heavy for all involved and affected by this tragedy."
