Two ID'd from deadly weekend car crash
Two of the four people who died in car crashes over the weekend have been identified as recent graduates from Eastside Memorial High School. Anderson Palma and Brianna Moreno both died after crashing into a pole on Riverside Drive. The car burst into flames. It's not known yet what may have led to that crash but police have indicated that speed may have played a role.
It was a deadly weekend on Austin roads. Two separate wrecks, each just hours apart, claimed the lives of a total of four people. Police say two people were killed in each car, including a man and a teen girl in one of them. The first happened when a Jeep crossed into oncoming traffic and hit a car head-on. The second happened as a car drove head-on into a billboard and burst into flames.
