Two Men Identified In Deadly Lowell Car Fire

LOWELL (KFSM) -- Two men are dead after a car accident in Lowell Thursday (March 8) morning, according to Lowell police Lt. Paul Pillaro.

Demarkeo Clark, 24, and Terry Christian, 32, were killed when their truck hit a tree and burst into flames. The men were believed to be homeless, and police are waiting on autopsy results from the State Crime Lab, Pillaro said.

The vehicle left the road at N Bloomington and School Avenue at about 8:30 a.m. and hit a tree before catching fire, Pillaro said.

“Coming up to the curve, started driving erratically and then drove off the roadway striking the tree. There are no skid marks. The witness said it didn’t appear they hit their brakes, so as of now we’re unsure of what caused the accident,” he said.

“Our accident reconstructionist along with our detectives will be working to this to try and figure out what caused it. I imagine that the both victims will be sent to have an autopsy done to try to figure out what may have caused the accident," he said.
