The names of the two males found dead in an Ironton car crash have now been released.

Police Chief Jim Carey says they are Joseph Leith, 23, and Drue Yates, 19.

The accident happened in the 1400 block of Lawrence Street Road about 4 a.m.

Carey says the driver was heading north when he apparently lost control, went over the center line, hit a guardrail and went into the creek.

A witness says the driver was traveling at a high speed at the time of the accident.
