THE BRONX – Two men were killed in overnight vehicle crash on the Bronx River Parkway, police said.

It happened on the highway at East 233rd Street around midnight Friday, police said. Investigators say that the sedan jumped a guard rail and then hit a tree on the right side of the parkway.

Police say emergency responders couldn't save the men after removing them from the wrecked car. Dayan Hunter, 47, and his 44-year-old brother Dave Hunter died at the scene of the crash.

Police are still investigating the deadly collision, but they say it appears speed was a factor.

Both sides on the Bronx River Parkway were temporarily closed between Exit 9 and Exit 10, but reopened early Friday before the morning rush hour.
