2 other Eagle’s Landing High School students injured

Three students were killed and two others were injured Wednesday in a single-vehicle crash near a Henry County high school, police said.

The vehicle wrecked about 3:15 p.m. near the intersection of Oak Grove Road and Oak Grove Circle, about a mile from Eagle’s Landing High School, where the five victims were enrolled as students, Henry police spokesman Capt. Randy Lee said. Kenderrias Dodson, 16, Katrina Owens, 15, and Jordan Brown, 15, were killed in the crash, the county coroner said.

The two survivors were taken to hospitals with serious injuries. Authorities did not say what caused the crash.

“We are saddened to confirm the tragic passing of three of our Eagle’s Landing High School students this afternoon in a car accident,” Henry County schools said in a statement Wednesday. “Our condolences go out to these students’ families during this extremely difficult time.”

Counselors and social workers will be at the high school Thursday to support grieving staff and students.

“We ask that everyone keep these families and this school community close in your thoughts,” the school district said.
