UNDATED (AP) - Authorities say two 18-year-olds were killed during a high-speed chase with a Marion County Sheriff's Office deputy.
According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, James K. Van Wagner lost control of the 1999 Chevrolet Camaro that he was driving when he came upon slower traffic on County Road 329. The vehicle, which was fleeing from the deputy, veered onto a shoulder and collided with a pole and several trees. The car overturned, and both Van Wagner and his passenger, Brandon Cordwin, were ejected.
The car traveled more than 250 feet before coming to a stop.
Cordwin and Van Wagner were both pronounced dead on the scene.
