SAN JOSE, Calif. —
The Santa Clara County medical examiner's office has identified two 19-year-old San Jose men who died in a crash on Interstate Highway 880 in San Jose early Saturday morning as Louie Carlos Flores and Joseph Robert Sionne.
Sionne and Flores were both in a 2010 silver Chevrolet Cobalt traveling north on I-880 shortly after 1:30 a.m. at the time of the crash, California Highway Patrol officials said.
The driver lost control of the speeding car for an unknown reason and struck a dirt embankment at the Old Bayshore Highway off-ramp, and then a ditch, the CHP said.
The passenger was ejected from the car, and the car came to a rest south of the Old Bayshore Highway on-ramp, the CHP said.
The passenger was pronounced dead at the scene, and the driver was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Medical examiner's office officials could not identify which of the two was the driver, and who was the passenger.
Investigators said Sunday that they believe the crash was caused by drug or alcohol intoxication, the CHP said.
Some tragedies at hospitals might be unavoidable, but a mother and father who lost their 21 month old daughter at Children's Hospital Oakland say it's what happened after their daughter's death that has continued to torment them.
