LAKE BUENA VISTA - Two teenagers were killed and a 20-year-old was seriously injured when the vehicle they were riding in struck a tree, and investigators believe the car was involved in a drag race when the driver lost control. Josue Rivera, 17, and Sergio Badia, 16, were killed in the crash, which occurred late Friday night. Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman Kim Miller said witnesses told investigators that Rivera's Maxima was racing against a Ford Focus that left the scene after the accident.
