Two teenagers died after an early morning crash on Lakewood Ranch Boulevard Saturday morning, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The crash occurred at 5 a.m. on Lakewood Ranch Boulevard north of Clubhouse Drive. Brendan Shreve, 17, was driving a 2012 Mercedes C350 and failed to negotiate a turn. This caused the Mercedes to hit the center median curb and slide into the median. It then hit a tree and the rear part of the car separated on impact. The rear of the Mercedes traveled into the southbound lanes of Lakewood Ranch Boulevard.
Shreve and 15-year-old Jared Duran were pronounced dead at the scene. Speed may have been a factor in the crash, according to FHP. The investigation continues.
