PENNFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A sheriff says a car carrying two teenagers was traveling more than 100 mph before a crash killed the girls in southwestern Michigan.

Calhoun County Sheriff Matt Saxton blames last week’s crash on speed and inexperience.

The victims were 17-year-old driver Sabrina Almaraz and 16-year-old passenger Kaleigh Woodman. They were juniors at Pennfield High School, north of Battle Creek.

The sheriff tells the Battle Creek Enquirer (http://bcene.ws/1lPfZAs ) that the 2001 Saturn was traveling at 103 mph just seconds before it went off a road and smashed into a tree. Woodman was not wearing a seat belt.

Woodman’s funeral was held Wednesday at Calvary Baptist Church. The funeral for Almaraz is planned for Friday at Dexter Lake Church of God.
