The names of two killed in the deadly Thursday morning crash that left four dead have been released, according to the LA Times. Jorge Nunez Jr., 28, of Sylmar, and Jossue D. Colato, 23, of Pacoima have been identified by the coroner's office. The names of the two women were not released.

The cause of the collision still has not been determined. What police are saying is that the 2007 corvette was traveling at a high rate of speed before it skidded some 200 feet into a guard rail, then across railroad tracks before coming to a rest upside down. One female driver was found pinned inside. Three others were found outside the car. At first, it was thought that one might be a pedestrian, but police believe all four may have inside the car, which is designed for two. Body parts were scattered along a stretch of the road.

It occured around 12:05 a.m. on Thursday just north of the Van Nuys Airport on the 16600 block of Roscoe Boulevard.
