Two 19-year olds and one 15-year old, who the Florida Highway Patrol says may have been drag racing, have died.  The teens were involved in a fatal accident with two cars and a tractor trailer on a Broward highway the other morning.  Three other teens involved were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of serious injuries.  The semi driver was not hurt but his passenger needed treatment for minor injuries.

The fatal accident happened on U. S. Highway 27 shortly after midnight.  Florida Highway Patrol officials reported that the drivers of two vehicles parked in the middle of the highway when a semi-truck approached and crashed into them.

The Highway Patrol is investigating the fatal accident by interviewing witnesses that were on the scene.
