Toxicology tests have found that a teenage driver had no drugs or alcohol in his system at the time of a crash in which he and three other teens died in West Brandywine last month.

West Brandywine Police Sgt. Jeff Kimes tells the Daily Local News of West Chester that the tests showed 16-year-old Collin Feiler McElroy was sober. Police say McElroy was traveling about 70 mph in a 35 mph zone on July 3 when he lost control and hit a tree.

Police identified the other three victims as 15-year-old Evan Pringle, 14-year-old Jerry Warfel and 17-year-old Kyle Marsh. All four were students at Coatesville Area High School.

Authorities say none of the teens were wearing a seatbelt. Investigators had found marijuana and other drug paraphernalia at the scene.
