DOUGLASSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — State police say a car crashed into a tree in eastern Pennsylvania, killing two men.

Police in Berks County say crews were dispatched shortly before midnight Friday to an intersection in Union Township.

Police say a car heading east on Route 724 failed to negotiate a curve, left the road and slammed into the tree.

The two 21-year-old occupants from Douglassville had to be freed from the wreckage and were taken to Reading Hospital, where both were pronounced dead. Their names weren’t immediately released.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
