CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Prosecutors have charged a 17-year-old girl accused of using inhalants before she crashed into the Wyoming Medical Center in Casper, killing her two passengers.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1x7RYFc ) Jessica Carnline is facing two counts of vehicular homicide in the Sept. 21 crash that killed Brandon Avery and Amanda Strickland, both 27. Carnline is charged as an adult.

Investigators say that at the time of the crash, she had chemicals in her blood consistent with those found in canned air duster. She is estimated to have been traveling 76 mph, and there is no indication she hit the brakes before the crash.

Search warrants indicate officers found a brass pipe containing a burnt residue that smelled of marijuana in the car and recovered a can of air duster on the driver’s floorboard.
