Two Silver Spring men died after the car they were travelling in slammed into a utility pole early Sunday in Montgomery County, police said.

Authorities said Leonel Osvaldo Gonzales, 24, was driving a black 2015 Lexus RX 350 SUV when he apparently lost control around 2:30 a.m. on University Boulevard West at Royalton Road in Silver Spring.

Gonzales and his passenger, 28-year-old Hodimyr Gonzalez, both died at the scene.

Police said speed could have been a factor.
