NC cops: Road might have contributed to wreck


    ASHEVILLE, NC (AP) — Asheville police traffic investigators
    say increased development along a highway where two teens were
    killed could have contributed to the crash.

    WLOS-TV reports that 18-year-olds Stephen Mills and Nicholas
    Montagna were killed Monday when a car driven by Mills lost
    control, went airborne and slammed into a muddy embankment. Five
    other teens in the car were injured.

    Police say the road they were traveling was designed 30 years
    ago as a low-capacity residential street. The area has grown
    significantly and created congested conditions.

    An initial report indicates Mills was driving well over the 35
    mph speed limit.
