Two people are dead after a crash in Putnam County.

Deputies say they got a call just after 7 Monday morning about a single-car crash on Highway 26 and Clear Creek Road near Magnolia.  The driver, 22-year old Brandon Ransom left the highway for whatever reason and hit a guardrail before ending up in a creek bed.  Ransom and his 19-year old passenger Stephanie Lomedico were thrown from the car and pronounced dead at the scene.  Both lived in rural Magnolia.

Autopsies are scheduled today.  The crash remains under investigation.
