Three Illinois teens were killed Monday afternoon in a collision with a semi-trailer truck.

The deadly crash happen around 3:15 p.m. on Illinois Route 126 near Oswego, Ill., in unincorporated Kendall County, CBS Chicago reports.

According to police, the teenage driver and his two passengers were killed after their car failed to stop completely before it pulled onto the road and into the truck's path, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Killed in the crash were driver Brian Herrera, 19, and passengers Tyler Montgomery, 19, and Alexis Banuelos, 18. Herrera and Montgomery were pronounced dead on the scene, while Banuelos was pronounced dead at Aurora's Rush-Copley Medical Center. The driver of the truck, a man in his 40s, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital, according to NBC Chicago.

Kendall County Coroner Ken Toftoy told NBC the collision was "probably one of the most horrific crashes that I've seen in 20 years being coroner."

Area resident Sandy Diller told CBS Chicago that intersection has been the site of many collisions and needs either a four-way stop sign or a flashing light.

"That corner scares me to death," Diller told the station.
