Police say a possible drag race may have led to the death of a 15-year-old girl in Rockville Friday afternoon.

Montgomery County Police were called to the crash involving two cars and two pedestrians on Muncaster Mill Road between Shady Grove Road and Woodfield Road around 3 p.m.

Both drivers were juvenile, police said. The two cars were traveling north on Muncaster Mill Road, which merged from two lanes into one lane, causing the collision. One of the cars went off the road and hit two of three juvenile pedestrians.

Police say one pedestrian died in the crash, and the second is in critical but stable condition in the hospital. A third pedestrian was not hurt. The three teens are students at Covenant Life Church just down the street from the crash.

"They're precious girls," Pastor Joshua Harris said. "They're loved by the school community and our church community. There are a lot of people that are really mourning tonight."

Police are investigating whether the collision was related to drag racing.

The two drivers and one passenger in one of the cars were transported to the hospital. They're expected to be OK.

Muncaster Mill Road is closed in both directions pending an investigation.
