    A teen accused of being under the influence while he was behind the wheel in a deadly crash in Lunenburg, Massachusetts, over the weekend faced a judge Monday.

    Investigators say 19-year-old Joseph Kapp was behind the wheel of a Mitsubishi Lancer early Saturday morning when he lost control and slammed into several trees along Hollis Road. 

    Two passengers were in the vehicle. One of them, 18-year-old Austin "AJ" Robbins, was killed. Another teenager was injured.

    Kapp made bail and was ordered to surrender his passport and to submit to random testing for drugs and alcohol.

    He's been charged with motor vehicle homicide while operating under the influence, operating under the influence causing serious bodily injury, operating under the influence and operating under the influence with negligent operation.

    Lunenburg's police chief says he used to warn kids about incidents like this. 

    He said, "I used to tell the Drivers Ed kids, 'look around you, one of you is not going to be here at graduation or right after and who is that going to be?'"
