NOTTOWAY COUNTY, Va. -- Authorities said two teenage girls were killed and three other teens remain hospitalized after their car crashed into a tree in rural Nottoway County Friday night.
Troopers were called to the wreck in the 1200 block of Route 633 (Lone Pine Road) at 10:35 p.m., according to Sgt. Dylan Davenport with Virginia State Police.
Davenport said a Chevrolet sedan headed east on Route 633 "ran off the road to the right, reentered the travel lanes, then ran off the road to the left and struck a tree."
Officials said the five teenagers, who are all juveniles, were taken to area hospitals.
A 17-year-old and 16-year-old girl died of their injuries, according to troopers, but officials said the three other teens are "expected to survive."
