Princeton, TX — A local student from Princeton High was killed early Sunday morning (November 10, 2013) after a single-car accident. Steven Chaney, 17, was killed along with a 17-year old male from McKinney North High School after their car crashed along Monte Carlo Boulevard.
Police said that 19-year old Josh Bartlett was driving a red Mazda along Monte Carlo carrying 7 passengers, though the car only has 5 seat belts. As Bartlett navigated a curve in the road at Florence Drive, he lost control and struck a curb before hitting a fire hydrant.
The car drove into a nearby field and Chaney and the student from McKinney North were ejected from the Mazda. They died at the scene while Bartlett and his four remaining passengers were taken to a hospital. At least one person was listed in critical condition.
The investigation into the accident is supposed to be ongoing and police haven’t said why Barlett lost control of the car.
