Two people were killed outside New Buffalo in a fiery motor vehicle crash

According to Berrien County Police....a burning car was found in a yard

in the 1600 block of Lakeshore Drive.....a mile or two east of the city's public beach.

Police say it appears the driver was traveling Marquette Drive at a high rate of

speed and failed to stop for a stop sign.

The vehicle then hit a tree and burst into flames.

Police say both bodies were extricated from the wreckage.

The names of the victims were not immediately released.

Whether alcohol or drugs were involved is pending the outcome of a blood test
