WOODLAND PARK, Colo. (AP) -- A memorial honoring three Boy Scouts killed in a crash in Wyoming has been removed from Woodland Park High School where they were students.

School officials tell KKTV-TV the makeshift memorial made of wood covered with mementos violated school policy.

The scouts were returning from a Boy Scout camp near Yellowstone National Park on June 30 when they collided head-on with a motor home.

Sixteen-year-old Paul Kekich, 17-year-old Nick Naples, and 17-year-old Alex Ragan died in the crash near Thermopolis.
