Sheriff: Alcohol 'possibly' a factor in fatal Stony Creek crash

Grief counselors will be on hand at four Utica high schools Monday following the weekend deaths of three students in a crash at Stony Creek Metro Park. 

Two other students were critically injured. 

Seventeen-year-olds Jonathan Manolios and Emanuel Malaj of Sterling Heights, and 17-year-old Michael Wells of Macomb Township, died in the crash Friday night. 

Witnesses say the boys were in a speeding Jaguar that lost control and landed in the Stony Creek river. 

Sheriff Tony Wickersham told Fox 2 Sunday it's possible that all five boys were drinking, but they're still awaiting toxicology reports before making any confirmations. 

According to deputies, four of the five boys were ejected.

Joe Narra and Greg Bobchick, both 17, were critically injured in the crash. 

The Macomb county sheriff's department continues to investigate the accident.
