Two teenagers are dead and one was seriously injured following an overnight car crash in Saline County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says around 12:50 a.m. Sunday, Scott W. Mullins, 19, of Marshall, was driving on Route YY just north of I-70.

Mullins lost control of the car, causing it to leave the road and overturn several times.

Troopers say Mullins was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.

Two passengers, John D. Eitel, 19, of Marshall, and Mikaela M. Giles, 19, of Independence, were seriously injured and transported by helicopter to University Hospital in Columbia.

Troopers say Eitel died at the hospital around 6 p.m. Sunday.
