Two people died in a crash Sunday in north suburban Newport Township.

An Infiniti was northbound on Delany Road about 6:45 a.m. approaching a dead-end intersection with Russell Road, according to a statement from the Lake County sheriff’s office.

The vehicle went off the east side of Delany and hit an embankment at a high speed, which launched it into the air for about 200 feet, the sheriff’s office said. It soared over Russell Road before crashing into the ground.

The driver, 23-year-old Angel Calderon, and front-seat passenger, 27-year-old Miguel Mandujano, were pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Lake County coroner’s office.

Autopsies conducted Monday indicated both men died of blunt-force injuries, the coroner’s office said. Toxicology testing is pending.

The crash remains under investigation, but the sheriff’s office said “excessive speed” appeared to be a factor.
