WELLSTON, Mo. (AP) - St. Louis County Police say they have identified two pedestrians fatally struck by a car last week.

Authorities say 22-year-old Jermaine Byrd and 18-year-old Latanya Williams died after being hit on a sidewalk in Wellston, near the intersection of Kienlen and Evanston avenues.

KMOV-TV reports the 19-year-old driver told police she was traveling southbound on Kienlen Avenue when she swerved to avoid an oncoming vehicle. Her vehicle struck a curb and continued onto the sidewalk, killing Byrd and Williams. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
