Two teenagers were killed in a three-car accident at 7:02 p.m. Tuesday after the car they were in went out of control on U.S. 285 about a half mile north of Pine Junction.

According to Colorado State Trooper David Hall, the two 16-year-olds who died were in a gray Honda Civic northbound when their car went out of control and crossed the center line.

The Civic hit a southbound 2004 Buick Ranier driven by Kylee J. Taylor, 20, of Bailey. The Civic then continued north, rotating as it went. A second southbound car, driven by Thomas Dimler, 42, hit the passenger side of the Civic.

Dimler’s vehicle rolled after the collision while the Civic ended up on its wheels in the roadway, according to Hall.

Two people in the Civic were killed: The driver, a 16-year-old male, and a 16-year-old female, who was a front-seat passenger.
