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, the driver, a 17-year-old Hebron boy, suffered an arm injury.

He and two other passengers 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.

Police are investigating the crash.
