SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — 115 miles an hour is the speed investigators have determined a car was going when it ran a red light and hit another vehicle, killing two high school students last month.

That’s 80-miles over the posted speed limit. Police say the car that the students were in was going 23 miles an hour.

The students were in a car that had just pulled into the intersection at East Arrowhead Parkway and Highline Avenue, on the east side of the city, when they were hit.
