JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Juneau police say alcohol and speed appear to be factors in a one-car crash that killed two people last week.

The Juneau Empire reports 19-year-old Abigail Kelley and a 15-year-old boy, whose name was not released, died in the crash Nov. 21.

Two young men, including the driver, were taken in critical condition to Bartlett Regional Hospital and then flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Police say the crash occurred shortly before 7 a.m.

A vehicle left the Glacier Highway north of Juneau and struck a power pole. The vehicle flipped several times and came to rest 60 yards (55 meters) from the pole.

Kelley and the 15-year-old boy were ejected.
