SUGAR CREEK- Friends and neighbors spent this Monday reflecting on the lives of two people who were killed in an early morning crash Sunday.

25-year-old Kyle Harris and 26-year-old Jennifer Johns were killed when their car ran off County Highway ES in the Town of Sugar Creek.

The Walworth County Sheriff's Department isn't sure exactly when the crash happened, but believes the tangled wreckage sat hidden from view for hours.

A driver spotted the crash and called 9-1-1. East Troy High School Principal Rick Penniston remembers both well.  Penniston said Johns was on the dance team and was known for her positive upbeat attitude, that was infectious.  "Harris was an outstanding student and young man."

Both graduated in 2004 and were engaged to be married.  An autopsy to determine the exact cause of death is scheduled to take place later this week.
