WELLINGTON, Fla. -- Two people died in a high speed crash Saturday night in Wellington.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says a 2013 Chevy Camaro was traveling southbound on South Shore Boulevard in the 3600 block at a high rate of speed on Saturday at 11:34 p.m.

According to PBSO, the driver, 19-year-old Dana McWilliams of Bethany, Connecticut, lost control of her vehicle and drove onto the center median.

Once the vehicle entered the median, it struck several trees and came to final rest several hundred feet from the initial impact.

Both McWilliams and her front seat passenger were pronounced dead at the scene. The rear seat passenger, 24-year-old Elaine Halloran of Wellington, was transported to St. Mary's Medical Center for serious/critical injuries.

PBSO says both people who died were not wearing seat belts. Halloran was wearing a seat belt in the back seat.
