Two teenagers were killed Friday night in a high-speed crash on West Lane south of Eight Mile Road, according to the California Highway Patrol. The two victims have not been named.
The crash took place when a 17-year-old girl from Stockton was driving a 1996 BMW south on West Lane at a high rate of speed, when she moved from the left lane to the right lane, according to CHP Officer Angel Arceo. She spun counter-clockwise and crossed the left lane into the dirt center divider, overturned several times and collided with a concrete bridge rail, landing on the south side of Bear Creek, Arceo said.
The girl and a 15-year-old male passenger were killed in the crash, according to a CHP report.
The drivers of two northbound cars were struck by flying debris, but were not injured. The northbound drivers were Trinidad Contreras, 48, of Stockton, driving a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire, and Kevin Tourville, 55, also of Stockton, driving a 2007 Ford Edge.
Drugs and alcohol are not believed to be a factor in the collision, Arceo said.
