A police officer on routine patrol discovered the crash just before 2 a.m. Sunday. Both victims were found a short time later and were taken to hospitals, but each was pronounced dead a short time later.

It did not appear that anyone else was in the vehicle when the crash occurred. Authorities did not immediately release the victims' names because they were still notifying their family members.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
