The Big Horn County Coroner's Office has identified the two Billings teens killed Sunday in a crash on Old Highway 87 as Elena Nelson and James Coburn.

Coburn and Nelson, both 17, were in a 2007 Ford Edge when it drifted off the road, went over an embankment and ejected both, according to the Montana Highway Patrol.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

Troopers said they believe excess speed contributed to the crash.
