SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane County Sheriff's Office is preparing search warrants to allow investigators access to two cars involved in a Sunday morning wreck that left a 19-year-old dead.

Four teens were involved in the wreck and the sheriff's office says they had been drinking that night and were racing at the time of the collision.

The collision happened around 2:30 a.m. Sunday near the intersection of 54th and Hatch Rd.

The office says 18-year-old Brooke Reese, driving a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am, tried to turn left at a high rate of speed when she collided with a BMW, driven by 18-year-old Taylor Marean, trying to pass her.

Both cars slid off the road into a tree on Hatch Road on Spokane's South Hill.

Reese suffered minor injuries in the wreck, but the passenger with her, 19-year-old Jacoby Bryant, was killed. Tuesday, an autopsy revealed Bryant died from head trauma.

Neither Marean or his passenger, 19-year-old Ryan Perrizo, were injured in the wreck.

The sheriff's office says they will be investigating what party the teens were attending before the wreck.

No charges have been filed, though the investigation is ongoing and charges could be forthcoming.

Blood was taken from both drivers and is being sent to the Washington State Toxicology lab for analysis. Results of the tests should take about 30 days.

Jacoby Bryant's funeral has been set for Friday at Hazen and Jaeger Funeral Home in Spokane Valley.
