PINEVILLE, La. (AP) - State police say two teenagers were killed and five other injured in a single vehicle crash in Rapides Parish.

Troopers say the accident happened around 9 a.m. on Ridgolette Road west of U.S. Highway 71.

Trooper Scott Moreau says a Jeep driven by a 16-year-old of Pineville topped a small hill at a high rate of speed and the vehicle became airborne.

Moreau says the SUV left the roadway and hit a large tree.

He says the driver suffered minor injuries.

Moreau identified the dead as 17-year-old Logan Cameron Ammons, of Ball, and 15-year-old Christain Gage Lavallie, of Pineville.

Four other passengers received moderate injuries and were taken to two Alexandria hospitals.

The crash remains under investigation.
