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 release which of the  two was the driver, and who was the passenger.

Investigators believe the crash was caused by drug or alcohol  intoxication, the CHP said.
