The driver of a car that crashed while attempting to elude police – killing two young people – has been identified as a 28-year-old Burlington man with a history of traffic infractions.

Michael Lewis was behind the wheel of a Nissan Maxima that police believe was fleeing an underage drinking party about 2 a.m. Saturday when it slammed into a BMW in South Burlington.

Two of the seven people in the Nissan were killed. They’ve been identified as 20-year-old Jason Schumann, of Winooski, and 18-year-old Samuel Laframboise, 18, of Burlington.

Chittenden County prosecutor T.J. Donovan says no charges have been filed in Saturday’s crash.
