A 17-year-old RHAM high school student was killed in a crash on West Street in Hebron just before 1 a.m. Tuesday.

Paige Houston, of Amston, was a passenger in the back seat of a 2000 Toyota Tundra that crossed lanes of travel and struck a tree in the area of Martin Road, according to state police.

She was ejected from the truck and pronounced dead at the scene. She was not wearing a seatbelt, police said.

According to state police, driver Connor McKee, 17, of Hebron, suffered an arm injury.

He and two other passengers, Andrew Burton, 16, of Hebron, and Zachary Trapp, 18, of Hebron, were all wearing seatbelts. They were transported to area hospitals for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Houston was a cheerleader and worked at a local CVS, according to her friends.

School is out for the summer, but grief counselors will be at RHAM from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m, according to high school staff.
