Two Southern Wayne Students Killed In Car Crash

Two students from the same high school were killed Sunday night in Wayne County after a traffic accident.

Troopers say Lisa Myers of Dobbersville Road crossed the center line and struck a pickup truck head on. The Highway Patrol says the crash ripped open the vehicle. A passenger in Myers' car, Tyler Brewer was thrown from the vehicle and also died.

The crash happened on Stevens Mill Road, not far from the intersection with Mill Creek Road.

Both victims were students at Southern Wayne High School. The 17-year-old Myers was an 11th grader, while Brewer was a freshman.

A Wayne County school spokesman says they have additional support staff at the school Monday to help students cope with the loss.

State troopers say neither speed nor alcohol were a factor in the accident.
