Two local teenagers are dead after a case of wreckless driving in Licking county. And State Troopers are saying that alcohol and speed are the main factors in that fatal crash. According to the Granville Post of the State Highway Patrol, at around 10:30 Monday night, a 1994 Geo Tracker, driven by 19-year-old Phillip Carter of Newark, and another vehicle were driven wrecklessly on Bolin road in Licking county. The patrol says the Tracker lost control, went off the left side of the road, hit a utility pole and then a tree. There were three passengers in Carter's vehicle. Two were ejected. 19-year-old Cliff Heaton of Nashport, and 19-year-old Jennifer Pintz of Newark were both pronounced dead at the scene. A juvenile in the car was taken by Medflight to O-S-U Medical Center in Columbus and is listed in critical condition. The victim was not identified. The drivers of both vehicles were not injured...and both admitted to Troopers to driving under the influence. The accident remains under investigation.
