There's very little evidence as to what exactly happened at 3:00 that morning, when a Chevy Impala with six teenagers left the roadway. Two were killed due to the injuries sustained. APD is looking into the possibility of the involvement of another vehicle, but nothing can be proven just yet.
"We don't have evidence to support that there was any type of collision prior to the Chevy Impala leaving the roadway and hitting the trees and the median," said Sgt. Waggoner.
And while few things remain certain as to why the vehicle left the road, one factor is known: speed.
"Evidence left at the scene from the roadway indicates a speed of over the posted speed limit," Sgt. Waggoner said.
APD is also looking into the possibility of drug and alcohol use prior to the accident. They have taken blood samples from the driver and three other passengers to test potential intoxication.
"Those results have been sent to the DPS lab," said Sgt. Waggoner. "It takes several weeks to get those back, so we will not know whether or not intoxication will be a contributing factor to the collision."
After the crash, police do know that the teens were taken to a nearby Allsup's. Though they did not call 911 immediately, it was clear that they knew they needed help quickly.
"Keep in mind that these are young adults. They've just had the most traumatic experience of their life. They've just been bounced around inside a vehicle. They've probably hit their head, if not once, multiple times.
"To say they should have called police right away, we can't speculate as to why they didn't. They did realize that someone was hurt and was trying to get them to medical attention as soon as they could," said Sgt. Waggoner.
