Bryan said two people died at the scene, who were identified as Stacey Petrnel,37, and Shanice Sadi Johnson,23. Petrnel was driving a red Dodge Neon and Johnson was driving the silver Hyundai. The child, who is under the age of 5, and the inmate were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
