Two Tennessee teenagers died after drinking "dewshine," a mix of Mountain Dew soda and methanol — known as "race car fuel" — officials said.

Police in Greenbrier, Tenn., are investigating after Logan Stephenson, 16, was found unresponsive in his home last Thursday, People reports.

Stephenson is the second teen whose is tied to bizarre cocktail: J.D. Byram died Monday night at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

The two teens were students at Grienbrier High School and were reportedly among a group of students experimenting with the cocktail last week. Two other students were taken to the ER after coming forward and saying they'd also drank the mixture, but have been released with a clean bill of health.

The drink mixture has long been known to be toxic. In 2012, at least 20 people were killed and dozens sickened in the Czech Republic after alcohol tainted with methanol circulated in the Eastern European country.
