SWUANEE COUNTY, Fla. – Two teens from St. Johns County passed away Saturday morning in a crash on Interstate 10 in Suwannee County.

An investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol showed the sedan the teens were driving west about 10:45 a.m. between I-95 and Live Oak drifted slightly into the grassy median. Investigators believe the driver, an 18-year-old boy, over-corrected, resulting in the car traveling off of the road and hitting a tree.

Both the driver and a 16-year-old female passenger died at the scene. Their names were not released.

Neither were wearing seat belts, according to the report.
