Grand Rapids — Authorities have identified two teenagers who died in an early morning crash on westbound Interstate 196 in Grand Rapids.
Seventeen-year-old Holland residents Julien Tirado and Kevin Boonheaun died at the scene Tuesday. A third person in the car was injured, and police say they’re still seeking a fourth who walked away from the accident.
Police say Tirado was driving a car that crashed into a guardrail after trying to pass another vehicle about 12:15 a.m. They say the car stopped in the freeway’s left lane and then was hit by a third vehicle.
The driver of the third vehicle has sustained minor injuries.
I-196’s westbound lanes were closed for several hours.
