Trooper Gene Williamson said two teen brothers along with another teen passenger were the three killed in the crash. Williamson identified the victims as driver David Hutchison, 18, Shawn Hutchison, 17, and Matt Strickland, 14.
Williamson said all three were from the Arden area. He said the car was going too fast for conditions when it his the tanker.
