In northeast Ohio, several teens have died in the past two and a half weeks.

According to AAA, research shows that the 100 Deadliest Days for teen drivers fall between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Four days later, Myka Gray, 18, from Clairdon Township, and Kayleigh O’Brien, 19, from Clairdon Township, died. Police said their car was traveling south on Aquilla Road in Geauga Township when it failed to stop at a stop sign at U.S. 322 and crashed.

On May 29, Jackson Condon, 17, and Dominic Ricci, 18, from Chardon died. Authorities say a commercial truck was traveling south on SR 44 when it struck the teen’s car. They, too, failed to stop at a stop sign, according to authorities.
