State police Friday night said they have located the black Cadillac that may have been involved in the crash that killed two Uniontown Area High School students on Wednesday in Fayette County.

State police also said they have identified the individuals who were in the Cadillac when it apparently was seen traveling along Route 119 in South Union near the sedan carrying the two students before the crash occurred.

A witness told police at the scene that the sedan appeared to have been racing with a Cadillac moments before the sedan crossed into the oncoming lane and collided with a Jeep. The Cadillac kept going after the teens crashed, said Trooper Stefani Plume, public information officer at the Uniontown barracks.

Trevor McFadden, 16, and De'Andre Jones, 17, both of Uniontown and both passengers in the sedan, were killed. The driver and another passenger, 16 and 17, were in critical or serious condition following the crash, although their conditions were not available Friday.

Police would not say where the Cadillac was located or release the passengers’ identities. They said the investigation is continuing.
