GLENDALE (3TV/CBS 5) --  Police have now identified two men killed Tuesday when their car crashed into a pole on Grand Avenue in Glendale.

Driver Cesar Cervantes, 31, and passenger Jacob Gonzales, 33, both died from their injuries.

Glendale police said their car hit a power pole at Grand Avenue, just south of Northern Avenue.

Police say it's not clear why the vehicle swerved off the roadway to the right and struck the metal power pole.

And police say while impairment does not appear to be involved, vehicle speed is being investigated as a possible factor.

Grand Avenue was closed to all southwest traffic for more than three hours while police investigated the crash.
