(MOUNT SUMMIT) - Two Henry County teenagers died Friday night when their car apparently hit a patch of ice, glided across an icy field, glanced off a grain bin and slid underneath a parked semi trailer.

18 year-old Travis C. Sharrett of Mount Summit and 16 year-old Whitney P. Thompson of New Castle died in the crash.

According to police, excessive speed did not appear to be a contributing factor. But once the car got off the road, the field "was a large sheet of ice."

Travis was driving, and it appears neither one was wearing a seatbelt.

Both were popular students at Blue River Valley High School.
