FOUR TEENS KILLED IN CRASH

Four Warren County High School students were killed Sunday morning when the
car in which they were riding crashed and burst into flames on Viola
Highway.

The driver of the 2013 Chevy Camaro perished along with his three
passengers. Thus far, pending positive identification, lawmen have
confirmed two of the dead are Christopher Frazier Jr., and Shanna Seiderer, both 17.
The other two names will be officially released following positive
identification through the forensic pathologist office.

According to preliminary reports, the single-car crash happened around 1:30
a.m. Sunday morning near the Southside subdivision on Highway 108 (Viola
Highway). The Camaro was headed southbound, away from McMinnville, when the driver
failed to negotiate a curve near the entrance to the subdivision. The
Camaro left the highway and struck a tree, uprooting it before overturning
and landing on its top. Two of the victims were ejected during the initial
impact and roll. The car then burst into flames.

The wreck remains under investigation by the Tennessee Highway Patrol with
more information pending the finish of their investigation. Funeral service times
for the teens killed in the crash are pending.
