CENTRAL CITY, Neb. (AP) - Authorities have confirmed the names of two 17-year-old girls who were killed in a Merrick County crash.

Grand Island Senior High School communications coordinator Jack Sheard told The Grand island Independent (https://bit.ly/2g22fia ) that Cheyenna Urbauer, of Grand Island, and Shania Rivera, formerly of Grand Island, died in the accident Saturday. Sheard says Urbauer was a senior at the school and says Rivera attended the school before moving and transferring.

Authorities say the crash happened just before 2 a.m. Investigators think the car was eastbound when it ran off the rural roadway. The driver overcorrected, causing the car to roll several times before landing in a roadside ditch.
