Fatal Crash Kills Two in Casper
K2's Ophelia Young reports, firstname.lastname@example.org:
Police continue to investigate yesterday afternoon's crash that claimed the lives of two men and injured two others.
A witness estimates the four-door passenger car was going at 70 mph. The vehicle swerved into the oncoming lane, side-swiped another car at the stop sign, and then launched off the pavement and into a ditch.
Witnesses found one man was on the dash and the other three balled up in or in between the seats. All were having trouble breathing.
Emergency personnel declared one dead at the scene--17-year-old Anthony Prince a Natrona County High School student.
The other three were rushed to the hospital where another, 21-year-old Jeremy Conrad, also died. The coroner says both suffered traumatic chest injuries.
Two other survivors suffered undisclosed injuries.
The principal of Natrona County High School says Prince was on his way to graduation, and that counselors were made available today for grieving students.
Police say speed likely played a factor, and are now investigating if substance abuse was involved.
