2 teens dead, 1 injured in Friday car crash

Two teenageers have died and a third hospitalized following an accident on Friday evening near Champion Point.
 
The FHP said Saige Summer Fields, 18, was driving north on U.S. 19 when she is said to have made several lane changes and then lost control of her car.
 
The crash report said that the car then went off the road and hit a roadway sign and then a tree.
 
One of the passengers in the car, 18-year-old Samantha Justine O’Connor, was pronounced dead at the scene. Fields was taken to Seven Rivers Hospital where she later died.
 
A second passenger, a 15-year-old boy, is at Shands Hospital with serious injuries.
 
Troopers say neither passenger was wearing a seatbelt. Investigators are still trying to determine whether alcohol was a factor.
