Hopkinsville student arrested for making terrorist threat on social media


Two teens were killed and two others critically injured in a crash early Sunday in Hopkinsville, Kentucky.

Officials said the car was traveling down Fort Campbell Boulevard near South Walnut Street when it veered off the roadway and went airborne. It then flew through three parking lots before hitting a business sign.

The teens who were killed were identified as 16-year-old Darius Majors and 17-year-old Jacory Burse.

The two injured were sent to Nashville hospitals to be treated. Their conditions were not immediately known.

"Speeds are a factor in the situation," said Lt. Kyle Spurlin of the Hopkinsville Police Department. "There's no reason at all to believe alcohol or drugs had anything to do with this."

"Our thoughts and prayers are going out to this family that's dealing with this accident right now," he continued. "We can't imagine what they're going through. It's good for all parents to sit down and talk with their kids and say, 'hey, look. This can happen.'
