Two men died Friday night after the vehicle they were travelling in lost control and hit a pole on Bishop Grandin Boulevard, police said.
The crash happened at around 11:30 p.m. in the westbound lane between St. Mary’s Road and River Road.
A blue 2-door Infiniti G35 was carrying four men in total.
Both victims are said to be in their early 20s and Facebook tributes are already pouring in. Two other men in their early 20s remain in hospital — one in serious condition with non life-threatening injuries, and the other in stable condition.
The wreckage was cleared from the scene this morning.
Police suspect speed was a factor in the crash.
