The two 17-year old girls were both wearing seatbelts.  They were taken to Othello Community Hospital where they were treated and released.  Investigators found fireworks, alcohol and marijuana in the car.  The Adams County Coroner will determine if an autopsy will be performed.  Adams County sheriff's deputies are still investigating the accident.
