ALBION – The Albion High School senior killed in a car accident last night has been a prominent performer in school musicals and other concerts.

Brennan Moody was killed in a one-car rollover accident at about 12:15 a.m. on Eagle Harbor Road. There were three other students in the vehicle and one sustained serious injuries. All are at hospitals, according to a message to parents from the school district.

Counselors, staff and clergy are at the school today for classmates and parents to drop in.

Moody, 17, of Kent was a passenger in the vehicle. A 2008 Chevrolet Impala had four males in the vehicle. The Impala left the east shoulder going into the ditch and becoming airborne, striking a utility pole with the roof, State Police said.

The 18-year-old operator and front passenger were treated for injuries at Strong Memorial Hospital. Mercy Flight took the other 17-year-old rear passenger to Erie County Medical Center for serious injuries. Excessive speed is believed to be a factor in this collision, State Police said.

The Bureau of Criminal Investigation, NYSP Collision Reconstruction Unit and the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office assisted in this investigation, which is ongoing.
