The parents of two Gary high school seniors who died in a car crash say their sons were left along the side of a road for several hours after police overlooked them while investigating the accident.

The Lake County coroner's office says Brandon Smith and Dominique Green were killed in the single-vehicle accident early Saturday. Smith's family members say two other occupants survived the crash and told emergency workers that two of their friends were still at the crash site -- but police didn't look for the other teens.

The Associated Press left a message seeking comment from Gary Police.

Gary Police Department Commander Samuel Roberts told the Post-Tribune that the officer who responded to the accident did not deviate from departmental procedures. He could not explain why the two teens were left along the roadside and said he did not yet know all the details of the case.
