Their car, a 2008 Toyota Camry, left the road and struck a tree during a heavy downpour around 1:30 Sunday morning.
The driver of the car and two other passengers were killed.

The buildings are listed in the National Register of Historic Places which makes the buildings eligible for rehabilitation tax credits.
