Early this morning, 23-year-old identical twins Jesse and David Brackett were killed in a car crash on Beachwood Drive a half mile from their home. Jesse was reportedly driving a 996 Acura Integra northbound on Beachwood Drive when he lost control and traveled into southbound lanes colliding with a parked U-Haul truck near Glen Oak Street. The impact killed Jesse immediately and forced the U-Haul backwards into a 1990 Cadillac Seville parked behind it. David Brackett, who was in the front passnger seat died of his injuries an hour later at the hospital.
