INDIANAPOLIS — Two high school students were on their way to a  prom Saturday evening when they were killed in a vehicle wreck.  

Lendon Byram and Kalen Hart died in the crash, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said. Byram was driving and Hart was the front-seat passenger, and two other students in the car were injured.

Hart's Instagram page says she was a member of the Class of 2021 at Hamilton Heights, where the prom was being held. The small district in northern Hamilton County is about 45 minutes from downtown Indianapolis. Byram was a member of the Class of 2022 at Cathedral High School in Indianapolis.

Two other high school-aged passengers in the backseat of the car were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the sheriff's office. A driver was in the other car, an SVU, and declined medical treatment at the scene.
