A 19-year old South Shore teen is dead, and police say speed may have been a factor in the crash that killed him, and left three others hospitalized.

Police say the driver, a 19-year old male, had been driving a 1998 Ford Explorer, perhaps at a high rate of speed, on Monday night. The SUV slammed into a utility pole on Route 80 (Elm Street) at about 9 p.m., going airborne and ending up in the woods.
One 19-year-old South Shore man was killed,  and three other 19-year old men were hospitalized.
Route 80 in the area of the crash is a rural, mostly residential road.
Kingston Police Chief Joseph Rebello declined to say what may have caused the crash, or if drugs and alchohol may have played a role in the crash. He says a cellphone caller reported to police seeing the vehicle involved in the crash travelling at a high rate of speed.
No names were immediately made public. The crash remains under investigation.
