Two girls have died in a single vehicle crash.

The crash happened on the Old Alaska Highway Wednesday night around 7:45 p.m., near Fort Nelson.

The two girls, 15 and 16 years old were in a vehicle carrying 5 people.

Fort Nelson RCMP say they believe drugs, alcohol, and speed all contributed to the crash.

Police say four of the five people in the Nissan 300ZX were ejected, while one male, who was wearing a seatbelt, only suffered minor injuries.

The 24 year-old male driver, from Burnaby, was taken to Dawson Creek Hospital and another 16 year-old female passenger was taken to Prince George Regional Hospital.

The driver is wanted in connection with outstanding charges on an unrelated matter in the province of Alberta and police say they expect to lay criminal charges against him in relation to last night’s crash.

Police are asking anyone with information about the accident to contact the Fort Nelson detachment at 250-774-3883.
