GATES MILLS, Ohio (AP) - Police say the driver in a crash that killed two Ohio high school seniors was going 20 mph over the speed limit when the Jeep he was driving went off the road.

An accident report says the SUV was traveling 55 mph in a 35 mph zone when it veered off the road and hit two trees in Gates Mills on May 14. The 18-year-old driver tells police he swerved after seeing something in the street.

Eighteen-year-olds Alexander Doody and Joshua Weil died in the crash. The report says Doody, Weil and the driver were wearing seatbelts. A fourth 18-year-old passenger wasn’t.

All four teens were students at Hawken Upper School.

Gates Mills Police Chief Gregg Minichello tells Northeast Ohio Media Group he expects the investigation to wrap up soon.
