DELAWARE COUNTY, Ohio – Two teenagers are dead and another is in critical condition after a crash in Delaware County Wednesday afternoon.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said the single-vehicle crash happened around 3 p.m. on SR-257 near Fry Road.

According to the highway patrol, 16-year-old Jacob Richardson was driving a Jeep Wrangler southbound on SR-257 when he traveled left of center, drove off the left side of the roadway and struck a guardrail.

The vehicle continued on, striking a utility pole and a tree before overturning and coming to a rest on an embankment.

Richardson was pronounced dead at the scene.

Fifteen-year-old Mykaela Fellure, who was in the rear passenger seat, was also killed.

OSHP said a 14-year-old seated in the front passenger seat was taken to Nationwide Children’s Hospital. She has since been released.

Authorities say Richardson and the 14-year-old were wearing their seatbelts. It is unknown if Fellure was wearing one.

Richardson and Fellure were students at Buckeye Valley Local Schools according to superintendent Andrew Miller. Counselors were made available at the schools on Thursday.
