Thirteen-year-old Anacshua Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene, and 12-year-old Chayanna Nesmith died at Broward Health Medical Center, deputies said. Both were residents of Pompano Beach.
Deputies said a 14-year-old boy was driving a 2007 Toyota at about 3 a.m., with six other minors in the car, when he lost control of the vehicle.
The car veered off the road, hit a palm tree and a metal pole on a railway crossing arm, before rolling over and landing upside down on the railroad tracks, according to the sheriff’s office.
Investigators said the car was reported stolen from Coconut Creek.
