Maine state police say a teenage driver had been drinking alcohol and was texting with friends at an underage drinking party when her car crashed, killing two passengers.
Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland says troopers are focusing on the pre-dawn Saturday crash in West Paris but also are looking into the party and where the teenagers obtained the alcohol.
He said Monday that 18-year-old driver Kristina Lowe had left the party with some friends and picked up another passenger before attempting to return.
The car went airborne and crashed into trees, killing 19-year-old Logan Dam and 16-year-old Rebecca Mason. Lowe and another passenger were hurt.
Troopers cite drinking and driver inattention as factors.
The driver's dad told the Portland Press Herald newspaper he thought she was in bed but it appears she sneaked out.
