Lexington Police are investigating the cause of a single car wreck that killed two people.
 
It happened Friday at 8:29 p.m. on the Rt. 11 Bypass.

All six passengers were initially transported to Carilion Stonewall Jackson Hospital, where two of the juveniles were pronounced dead and one juvenile was released.
