Two Allen East High School seniors lost their lives late Friday when their vehicle went into the air and struck a tree.
Kyle P. "Lyle" Long, 18, of Harrod, was driving a 1998 Ford Mustang southbound on Lawrence Road near Alger Road at 11:50 p.m. when he lost control of the car, according to a Lima post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol news release. Allen County Coroner Gary Beasley pronounced Long and passenger Seth V. McClintock, 17, of Lima, dead at the scene.
"They were both great kids. They were active and involved," Allen East Superintendent Michael Richards said. "It's just a tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families and our student body."
McClintock was a top golfer for Allen East. Long was an honor roll student. On Long's MySpace.com page, Long listed his dad as his hero and said he loved fishing, hunting and cars.
Counselors will be on hand Monday at the high school, Richards said.
Investigators determined the boys were not using seatbelts, and alcohol is considered a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation, according to the Lima post of the patrol.
Long drove off the right side of the road, over-corrected while coming back on the road, crossed the center line and traveled off the road again, going airborne and then striking a tree.
Troopers said Saturday that they had not yet completed a timeline of where the boys were coming from or where they were going.
This is the second double fatal crash since December involving Allen East High School students. Andrew Lane is facing four chargers related to the Dec. 5 crash in which passengers Sara Kruger, a sophomore, and Kierra Morman, a freshman, were killed.
McClintock's funeral arrangements are by Hanson-Neely Funeral Home, Ada. Long's funeral arrangements are by Bayliff and Son Funeral Home, Cridersville.
