A car carrying four Glen Ridge juveniles crashed in an Essex County park late Sunday, leaving a 16-year-old boy dead, according to Acting Essex County Prosecutor Theodore Stephens.

The Essex County Prosecutor’s Crime Scene Investigations Bureau responded around 11:30 p.m. to the single-car crash on Brookdale Park’s West Circuit Drive in Bloomfield.

All four minors were taken to local hospitals, Stephens said.

The 16-year-old, who had been a rear seat passenger, was pronounced dead at St. Joseph’s Medical Center.

No other details were disclosed by police as of Monday evening, including the ages or conditions of the surviving driver and passengers or the make and model of the vehicle.

West Circuit Drive runs along the western perimeter of the county park that spans parts of Bloomfield and Montclair — while East Circuit Drive runs along the eastern perimeter.
