Comanche County_Special grief counselors will be available this week to help students at Comanche County High Schools cope with the loss of two local teenagers.  They were killed in a rollover crash this weekend.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 19-year-old Dusty Herring of Sterling and 16-year-old Trenten McIntosh of Elgin were thrown from a car early Sunday morning on Highway 65 just north of Rogers Lane.  Investigators say Herring was speeding when he lost control and crashed into a traffic sign before the car rolled over onto its top.

OHP says both Herring and McIntosh were not wearing seatbelts when they were thrown from the vehicle.  The funerals for the two boys are scheduled for this week. 

Herring's funeral service is Wednesday at 3pm at the Sterling High School Auditorium.  He graduated from Sterling last year and had been working at "Overhead Door" in Lawton.

McIntosh's service is set for 10am, Thursday at the Elgin High School Gym.  Elgin's School Superintendent says McIntosh was a good student and very popular.  He is the third Elgin student to lose his life this past year.
