Fatal Roll-Over Claims Four Lives Near Magrath

MAGRATH:   This small town of 2,300 is in mourning after a single-vehicle rollover claimed the lives of four local teenagers. The bodies of the teens were not found until 5:45 Sunday morning. However, it's believed the roll-over occurred late Saturday evening. The parents of one of the teens notified police when their teen had not arrived home by curfew.

The rollover happened just east of Magrath on Township Road 55-A. RCMP say the west-bound vehicle appeared to have skidded off the road and landed up-side down and partially submerged in Pothole Creek. An off-duty emergency services worker discovered the wreck while passing by.

The two 16-year-old boys and two 14-year-old girls were not related to each other. The Magrath high school called in grief counsellors to help students cope with the deaths of fellow students, 14-year-old Danae Gough, 14-year-old Jorden Miller, Clay Card, 16, and Renzo Dainard, 16.  Both girls were in grade nine while the boys were in grade-11.

RCMP from Raymond/Magrath, Cardston, Milk River and Lethbridge Reconstruction analysts investigated the roll-over. They believe speed and driver inexperience were the cause. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
