Kentucky state police say two teenagers have been killed when a pursuit ended with a suspect's vehicle striking a car.

State police spokesman Trooper Scott Sharp said in a news release several police departments were pursuing the pickup on Saturday night when it struck the car at a U.S. 31 intersection south of Radcliff.

The statement said the car's driver Jacob Barber, 18, of Elizabethtown, and a 17-year-old passenger were killed.

Sharp said the pickup's driver, Shawn Welsh, 36, of Fairmont, West Virginia, was treated at a hospital before being released into custody of the Meade County Sheriff's Office. It wasn't immediately clear if he faced charges. The sheriff's office was closed Sunday.

His passenger, Laura Neville, 36, of Morgantown, West Virginia was charged by state police with possession of methamphetamine and on a fugitive warrant.
