RIPLEY COUNTY, IN (FOX19) -

Investigators confirmed that racing was not a factor in an unexplained crash which killed three teenagers in Ripley County.

17-year-old (Timothy) Curtis Bowman of Osgood, Indiana; 18-year-old Jacob Vogel of Versailles, Indiana; and 18-year-old Samantha Hanson of Holton, Indiana, died Thursday morning at the intersection of Fairgrounds Road and County Road 850W. Their school superintendent said they had been serving breakfast to farmers at a Future Farmers of America event at Hopewell Church, located nearby. He didn't know why they left what was supposed to be an all-day event.

On Monday, Indiana State Police revealed both vehicles involved in the accident left the church at different times, and each driver was unaware of the other leaving the event.

Three others were injured in the crash and survived. The 17-year-old driver of the Dodge Ram pickup, 15-year-old Caleb Cumberworth of Holton, who was riding in the Dodge, and 15-year-old Kayla Adkinson of Holton.
