Two Kenai residents and one Florida visitor were identified by the state medical examiner’s office as the individuals who died in a fatal car wreck last month, according to a press release from the Kenai Police Department.
Antonio De La Cruz and Terry Reed, both 24-year olds from Kenai, and Anthony Martin, 32, of West Palm Beach, Florida, were all killed in a two-vehicle collision on July 17 near Milepost 15 of the Kenai Spur Highway.
According to the original accident report, the three individuals were in a small passenger car driving southbound at a high rate of speed and passed a vehicle on the right side of the road, before losing control and veering into oncoming traffic. They collided with a northbound pickup and both vehicles caught on fire.
De La Cruz, Reed and Martin were pronounced dead, and all four people in the pickup survived.
