Two people were killed and two others suffered non-life-threatening injuries in a crash near Sahara Avenue and Lamb Boulevard Tuesday night, according to Metro Police. The crash involved a car and SUV. 

Responders were called to the scene at Sahara Avenue and Carillo Street at 8:59 p.m. Officers said a 2-door Acura with two occupants traveling eastbound on Sahara lost control for unknown reasons. It crossed the median into the westbound lanes and crashed into a Dodge Durango with two occupants which caused it to split in half. 

A person in the Acura was ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The second occupant was transported to Sunrise Hospital where he later died. They were identified by the Clark County Coroner's Office as Kevin Garcia, 17, and Omar Garcia, 20. 

Police said the occupants traveling in the Durango were also transported to Sunrise Hospital but only suffered minor injuries. 

LVMPD crash scene investigators believe speed was a factor in the crash. 

Delays, road closures and lane restrictions were expected as police investigated the area of Sahara and Carillo Street.
