(FORT WAYNE) - Authorities have identified two teenagers who died in a crash involving a horse-drawn buggy and pickup truck in northeastern Indiana.

The Allen County coroner's office has identified the victims as 18-year-old Rebecca Graber of Grabill and 16-year-old Michelle Graber of Fort Wayne. Their deaths were ruled accidental. The cause was blunt force trauma due to a motor vehicle crash. Authorities said Tuesday that they didn't know yet how the teens were related.

The crash happened Sunday evening. Police are searching for the driver of pickup truck, who fled. Two men were taken to the hospital with serious and critical injuries.

Authorities say two other crashes involving horse-and-buggies happened nearby, but those crashes were not related to the fatal crash and didn't involve life-threatening injuries.

The crashes are under investigation.
