Family and friends are mourning the loss of two teens killed in a crash early Sunday morning in Beechview.
Investigators said 17-year-old Mysharri Millender and 18-year-old Kahdejah Cammon-Perkins, both of Pittsburgh, died in the crash.
Pittsburgh police are trying to determine if alcohol and speeding contributed to the crash, which killed the two teens and injured two others.
Police haven't released the names of two males, ages 17 and 19, who were reportedly critically injured and remained hospitalized Monday.
The crash happened about 3 a.m. Sunday when the car left Route 51 and traveled up an embankment, crashing in a wooded area in the city's Beechview section.
Blood tests are being conducted on all four victims. Police spokesman Diane Richard said investigators were still trying to determine who was driving the vehicle.
The dead women and one of the males were ejected from the GMC Envoy. The other male was found in the rear seat.
Cammon-Perkins’ mother, Dearia Perkins, told Channel 11’s Jodine Costanzo on Monday that her daughter and Millender were classmates, co-workers and best friends. She also said they’ll be laid to rest together.
“If you saw one, you saw the other. They went out together, and we’re going to bury them together,” Perkins said.
Perkins told Costanzo that she had been raising Millender the last couple of years, so she’s grieving the loss of two daughters.
“They were two good girls on the right track and going to school. They worked, and their lives were taken over stupidness,” Perkins said.
Authorities said their investigation could take months. We’ll bring you all updates on Channel 11 News and WPXI.com.
