2 teens killed in Antioch crash

ANTIOCH, Ill. — Authorities in northern Illinois say two teens were killed when an SUV crashed into a tree in Antioch.

The Lake County Sheriff's Department reports that the crash Monday night killed a 16-year-old boy from Antioch and a 17-year-old girl from Lindenhurst.

Authorities say the teens were in a 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer when the SUV went off the road and hit a tree. The uprooted tree partially landed on the vehicle.

The sheriff's office says both teens were pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators are trying to determine what caused the crash, but authorities say weather conditions appear to have been a factor.

Antioch is about 50 miles northwest of Chicago.
