2 high schoolers die in Athens crash

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say two high school students were killed over the weekend when the car they were riding in hit a vehicle head-on and burst into flames.

The Georgia State Patrol said the lone survivor, a 15-year-old, was injured in Saturday evening's crash on the Athens Perimeter near the U.S. Highway 441 exit.

Oconee County Coroner Ed Carson said Robert Burgdoff and Kenneth Davis, both 16, were pronounced dead at the scene. The injured teen's name was unavailable.

Troopers said the car crossed the median and hit a sport utility vehicle head-on.

Investigators said speed may have been a factor.
