BOWLING GREEN — Two teenage cousins died in a crash outside Bowling Green after a car ran off a curve and into a tree.
Trooper Jonathan Biven said both occupants were wearing seat belts, and speed was a factor in the Wednesday morning crash, according to the Daily News in Bowling Green. WPSD-TV in Paducah identified the victims as William Mallory, 19, of La Center, and the driver, Richard Benton Page, 18, of Bowling Green.
Mallory was an honors sophomore at the University of Kentucky. Page was a student at Western Kentucky University.
