Prosecutors just released a report on a Cove Road accident that killed three teenagers.

It's several hundred pages long.

And the report explains that two adults held a house party where they served minors alcohol and made no effort to check their ID to see if they were old enough to legally drink.

The report from the Florida Highway Patrol sheds new light on the events that led up to the fatal crash last August that killed 18-year olds Nicholas Coady and Chris Briglio and 16-year old Connor Graver.

Their Jeep Grand Cherokee slammed into a front-end loader and overturned.

According to the FHP report all three teens attended a house party in Palm City, where they each paid $10 for a cup that allowed them to drink from a keg of beer.

One woman Brandie Koors, Coady's girlfriend, says two adults who hosted the party at their apartment, David Harper and Craig Frick went around the room with a bucket, collecting money from those who attended.

The  woman also told FHP the three teens who died in the crash had consumed a large amount of alcohol at the house part and she said that Harper and Frick never made any attempt to check if everyone could legally drink.

The report shows that the FHP felt there was enough evidence to pursue charges of manslaughter and culpable negligence against Frick and Harper. According to the report, there was so much drinking going on at the house party at one point they ran out of alcohol and had to get more.

Harper...who's the assistant baseball coach at South Fork High in Stuart...and Frick are facing misdemeanor charges of holding an open house party, and could face up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine if convicted.
