      Two women in their early 20s, one from Canyon Lake and the other from Seguin, were killed early Tuesday in a one-car crash in Medina County.
       
      Laura Annette Masuccio, 20, of Canyon Lake, was dead on arrival at San Antonio's Methodist Hospital at 4:59 a.m.  Her passenger, 21-year-old Kimberly Coor Kubenka, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, 2.6 miles north of San Geronimo on Texas 16.
       
      Texas Highway Trooper Wesley R. Scott things the accident occurred at approximately 3 a.m.  It was reported to authorities at 3:23, when a passing driver discovered the wreckage.
       
      "As near as we can figure, (the women) were traveling south on 16, at a very high rate of speed, and tried to negotiate a fairly sharp curve to the left," said Scott, who works out of Hondo.  The car apparently didn't make the curve, went off the road to the right, and then went out of control. skidding across the roadway and hitting a tree on the left side.
       
      The first impact "just broke the car in half," Scott said.  The vehicle then swung around and hit a second three, throwing both women clear.
       
      Kubenka was pronounced dead at the scene at 3:30 a.m. by Justice of the Peace D.S. McAnelly, of Medina County. 
       
      Scott said the accident occurred northeast of Hondo, where Texas 16 takes a three-mile cut across the tip end of the county.  The fatal curve bears a warning sign, recommending 40 miles per hour as the maximum safe speed, he said.
       
      Kubenka's funeral arrangements are being handled by Palmer Mortuary in Seguin.
