California Highway Patrol is investigating the accident that occurred Sunday night near 426th Street toward High School Road.
A family friend says Jeramy Smith and his girlfriend Danika Lee Ibbotson died in the crash.
The victims are both 18 years old and from North Fork.
The CHP says Smith was behind the wheel of a BMW when he tried to pass a Honda Civic.
His car was cut off at the back of the Honda, veered off the road and hit a tree.
Police say both teenagers were not wearing seat belts and jumped out of the car.
Jeramy died at the scene and Action News was informed that Danika had died after being taken to hospital.
A vigil will be held in Oakhurst this Friday night in memory of the young victims, who celebrated a year together in April.
