MIRAMAR, Fla. -- Two teenagers are dead after driving a car into a South Florida house.
The Miramar Police Department says the 18-year-old men were driving early Tuesday when their vehicle veered out of the lane they were traveling in and catapulted into some shrubbery. Police say the vehicle then rolled over and struck the back of a home.
Miramar police spokeswoman Tania Rues says Kevin Anthony O'Connell of Pembroke Pines died at the scene and Ian Michael Guckian of Weston was pronounced dead at a hospital. It was unclear which teen was driving.
No one in the residence was injured.
