LANCASTER -- Two Lancaster residents died this week in a three-vehicle collision that happened during a rainstorm.
Heather Danielle Marie Johnson, 19, was taken to Springs Memorial Hospital, where she died Tuesday night from chest injuries, said Lancaster County Coroner Mike Morris.
Her passenger, 23-year-old Jose Luis Torres De La Luz, died at the scene from head and chest injuries, Morris said.
No autopsy or toxicology test will be done, Morris said.

Around 5:35 p.m. Tuesday, Johnson traveled west along Camp Creek Road, about 2 miles east of Lancaster, when her 1993 Plymouth van went off the road, overcorrected, crossed the center line and struck two eastbound vehicles, said Lance Cpl. Josef Robinson of the S.C. Highway Patrol.
Johnson wore a seat belt but Luz did not, Robinson said.
The van struck Toiya Evans of Lancaster, who drove a 2004 Chevy four-door, and Tina Enfinger of Lancaster and her children, who were in a 2002 Toyota 4-Runner, Robinson said.
Evans, who wore a seat belt, was not injured, Robinson said.
Enfinger and her two children, ages 18 and 11, were taken to Springs Memorial, Robinson said. Enfinger and her 18-year-old son were treated and released, a hospital spokeswoman said Wednesday.
Enfinger's 11-year-old daughter was transferred to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, where she was listed in good condition, a hospital spokeswoman said Wednesday.
Authorities have not determined whether rain played a role in the collision, Robinson said. The wreck remains under investigation.
