Two teen age sisters who were students at Spanish Springs High School were killed in an early morning accident on the Pyramid highway.
17-year-old Jessica Welch, and her 16-year-old sister, Cassie were killed when their car veered into oncoming traffic about 6:30 this morning.
The other driver 25-year-old Marina Marlow of Sparks, was injured in the accident when the girls' car hit her S-U-V.
Marlow suffered minor injuries to her knee and leg.
Traffic was blocked for two hours...while the accident was being investigated.
Troopers say they don't know why the girls lost control of their car but they say the two sisters weren't wearing seatbelts
Its the first time Spanish Springs high school has dealt with the traffic deaths of two students
