According to an autopsy report released Wednesday by the Walla Walla County coroner two of the three occupants were also not wearing seatbelts.

The death of the three teens has sent a shock through the Walla Walla community.   According to crash investigation information and the autopsy reports, 15-year-old Athena Bentley was behind the wheel of the car when it went off the road on Mill Creek Road early Sunday morning.   Also killed were 16-year-old Uziel Bermoy and 17-year-old Aiden Boede.  Authorities say Bentley did not have a driver’s license.  They were reportedly driving a car licensed to Bermoy’s father.

Coroner Richard Greenwood said the three likely died instantly in the crash, which occurred sometime before 3am.  The car, a Dodge Neon, had been found resting upside down by Walla Walla County deputies near Seven Mile Road.    No additional details about how the crash occurred were released Wednesday.

Officials say toxicology results on the victims are said to be pending.
