ST. CLOUD, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say two teens are dead after crashing into a suspected drunken driver in central Florida.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports that 47-year-old Randall Kerley was driving a pickup truck in Osceola County Thursday night when he turned left at an intersection in front of an oncoming car. The car hit the right side of Kerley's truck and caught fire as it hit an SUV that was stopped at the intersection.

The car's driver, 18-year-old Rachel Price, and her passenger, 19-year-old Jamaree Cook, were killed in the blaze. No injuries were reported to Kerley or the SUV driver.

Troopers report that Kerley showed signs of impairment after the crash. He was arrested at the scene and charged with two counts of DUI manslaughter. It was immediately clear if he had an attorney.
