BRUNSWICK -- The State Highway Patrol says a car that went airborne over a sloped railroad crossing reached 69 mph and traveled almost 90 feet before landing in a crash that killed four high school students southwest of Cleveland.
A fifth student was injured in the June 3 crash. It happened hours before two of the students were set to graduate from Brunswick High School.
Three students were wearing seatbelts. There was no indication alcohol was involved.
The newly released accident report indicates drivers have repeatedly used the incline at the crossing to go airborne in their vehicles, leaving gouges in the road when they landed. The road has a 55 mph speed limit.
New signs set a 25 mph limit near the crossing.
