Young drivers and speeding does not mix.

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Police said two teens were arrested for racing over the Blue Bridge in Pasco.

Sunday morning, two boys in the Seattle area died after plunging their Ford Explorer into the Elliott Bay.

Police said the mixture of inexperience and speed can kill.

According to government statistics collisions cause 75 percent of all deaths among American teens and two-thirds of all deaths among Washington teens.

Police said young drivers need to be careful.

Kennewick Police Officer Mary Buchan said, "It's really a game of Russian Roulette and sometimes the out come is not good."

Police near Seattle said they are still investigating the situation but said drugs and alcohol might have been involved.  Police also said four other teens survived the crash.
