Friends Stunned by Death of Teens in Fiery Crash

It happened on Interstate 380 in Monroe County. Troopers say the two teens were traveling slowly when a tractor-trailer hit them.

Many of us have been in the position these girls were early Tuesday. They were driving slowly, troopers believe, because they had a donut spare tire on the car. A tractor trailer driver was unable to stop and hit the vehicle, killing Brooke Hughes, 18, of Scranton and Chaniya Morrison, 19, of Dunmore.

State troopers are using the charred remains of the Suzuki Forenza to try to piece together just what caused a tractor-trailer to collide with the car carrying the two teens.

Teen driver was live video broadcasting self online at time of fatal crash

Lights illuminate Brooke Miranda Hughes’ face as the Scranton teen holds up her cellphone while driving along Interstate 380 near Tobyhanna shortly after midnight Tuesday.

She is broadcasting a live Facebook video.
