    Four ambulances and a CareFlite helicopter were called to the scene of a crash in Dallas Friday morning where four teens were injured when their SUV crashed into a tree.

    The crash took place shortly after 9 a.m. on the 2500 block of Scammel Drive, not far from the intersection of Bruton Road and S. Buckner Boulevard.

    Police said four teens, all students at Skyline High School, were involved in the single-vehicle crash.  Investigators said the driver was speeding, hit a fence and crashed into the tree.

    Dallas Fire-Rescue said there is no word on the ages of those involved or the severity of their injuries, though the Dallas Independent School District said Friday afternoon that all of the students are expected to be OK.

    The district added that crisis counselors will be at Skyline High School on Monday for anyone needing help.
