Police identify all 5 victims in Kalamazoo crash

Authorities have positively identified all five Kalamazoo teenagers killed when the speeding car they were in burst into flames after slamming into a tree.
The Kalamazoo County sheriff’s office says that the victims were 15-year-old Marshawn Williams and Jaquarius Hegler, 16-year-old Elexus Hillsman and Cortavian Murphy, and 17-year-old Deztanee Cobb.
Cobb and Williams were identified earlier.
The teens were in a Dodge Charger that police estimated was traveling about 100 mph before crashing shortly before 1 a.m. Saturday in Comstock Township, near Kalamazoo.
A Kalamazoo Township police officer saw the car speed past and began to chase it, but soon lost sight of the vehicle. The officer later came across the burning wreckage in a yard off the street.  (AP)
