CHESTER, Md. (AP) -- The Queen Anne's County sheriff's office has identified the four men killed in a two-car crash in Chester.

Eighteen-year-old Cory Passagno, 18-year-old Harrison Rhodes Smith and Tyler Elzey, who authorities said was 18 or 19, all of Chester, and 19-year-old Michael John Ringenbach of Stevensville died.

All four were pronounced dead at the scene of Wednesday afternoon's crash on Cox Neck Road and Jones Road. They were all in one car.

Deputies say the driver of the other car, 73-year-old Eli Dabich Jr. of Chester, was flown to Shock Trauma in Baltimore.

The accident remains under investigation, but deputies say that speeding by the car with the four young men may be a factor.
