Posted January 21, 1997 12:00 a.m. EST

— A 17-year-old high school student died when her car ran off Creek Road, slamming into a tree. Troopers have identified the victim as Marsh Biggins.

She was reportedly driving to her boyfriend's home at a high rate of speed because he had threatened to commit suicide. The young man was found hanged in his backyard a short time later.

Both were students at Fairmont High School.
