A fiery one-car crash in Saginaw has left two 16-year-olds dead and two other teens injured.

Authorities say excessive speed is a factor in the crash about 11:30 p.m. Saturday. WNEM-TV, WJRT-TV and The Saginaw News report the car carrying the four teens went out of control, slammed into a tree and burst into flames.

Bystanders helped pull the teens from the wreck before rescue workers arrived.

Authorities say Isziah Weston died at the scene. Maurice Burnett died Sunday at a hospital. WJRT reports Isziah was a student at Arthur Hill High School, and Maurice was a student at Saginaw High School.

Police say Isziah's 19-year-old brother Mitchell Weston and their 17-year-old cousin Jermany Laster were hospitalized.
