LEHI — Two 19-year-old men were killed Sunday after crashing in Lehi, police said.

About 8:42 a.m., a vehicle came off of southbound I-15 in Lehi at an "extremely high rate of speed," said Lehi Police Cpl. Tyler Prawitt.

At the end of the off-ramp when the car reached the intersection of 2100 North and Thanksgiving Way, the road forks to the left and right but does not continue straight. But the car continued straight through the intersection "and took out 300 feet of fence, went over a retention basin and vaulted over another fence to where it finally rested," Prawitt said.

The two occupants were found dead after the crash. Their names have not yet been released.

"The major contributor to this was speed, for sure. We're looking into the possibility of impairment, but that's unconfirmed at this time," Prawitt said. "It was tragic, absolute tragedy to see that."
