Three Indian-American students were killed while two others were injured as their speeding car turned turtle in Alpharetta, Georgia. All of them were 18 years old and two of those killed were women. Speeding might have been the primary factor in the deadly car crash, according to Alpharetta Police.

The five Indian-American teens studied at Alpharetta High School and the University of Georgia.

The deceased students were identified as Aryan Joshi, a senior at Alpharetta High School, Sriya Avasarala and Anvi Sharma, both first-year students at the University of Georgia.

Anvi Sharma, a rear passenger, later succumbed to her injuries at North Fulton Hospital.

Police are investigating the reason behind the crash, but initial data suggests that speed might have been the factor.
