BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Two young Whatcom County men are dead in a suspected DUI crash early today.

The Washington State Patrol reports 23-year-old Travis L. Holst from Ferndale was driving an SUV northbound on the Guide Meridian just after midnight when he crossed the center line and collided head-on with a Honda Civic driven by a 20-year-old Brox M. Browning from Lynden.

Browning died at the scene and Holst later died at PeaceHealth Saint Joseph Medical Center.

Witnesses said Holst was speeding and driving erratically.

Officers on the scene smelled alcohol on Holst.
