FC)--Two men died in a single-vehicle, fiery crash in downtown Enid early this morning. Enid Police officials said just before 2:00 a.m., Enid police and fire departments responded to a vehicle accident at 108 E. Maine after a vehicle had lost control, crashed into the Garfield Furniture mattress store and caught fire. The driver, 24-year-old Dalton Wade Pittser, and his passenger, 23-year-old Elijah Ray Rummel, were both pronounced dead at the scene. According to the report, the 2017 Camaro was traveling westbound on Maine when it struck the center-column of the East Maine Bridge between Second and Third streets before continuing west until it crashed into the building. Police said video from a nearby business showed the vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed before losing control and striking the building. Witnesses at the scene told officers they were eastbound on Maine when the vehicle passed them at a high rate of speed prior to the crash. The incident remains under investigation.
