Police are asking for help identifying two victims of a high-speed crash that left at least one man with life-threatening head injuries and a car destroyed.
Police are investigating the unusual circumstances of the accident. So far they don't know who the men are, which of them was driving, or who the car belongs to, said police spokesman Lt. Paul Shastany.
He said two men in their early 20s were driving more than 90 mph north on Concord Street when they turned right and struck a tree near Pond Street yesterday shortly after 2 a.m.
The crash ejected one man from the car and tore apart a 1997 Chrysler Sebring convertible. The car was demolished in the crash.
One man was taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and the other to Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. The man taken to Beth Israel suffered life-threatening head injuries and was in serious condition, Shastany said.
Police questioned one of the men, who called himself "Al," and that man said he and the other man had been drinking vodka before the crash, Shastany said.
Police don't know who was behind the wheel because the position of the man found inside the car made it unclear whether he was the driver or the passenger. Neither man was wearing a seat belt when the car hit the tree, said Shastany.
Neither man had identification, and the car had no registration or other paperwork.
Police can't determine its current owner based on the vehicle identification number or inspection stickers, said Shastany. The car's Pennsylvania plates belong to a previous owner, while the VIN is linked to a resident of Stoneham, he said.
Anyone with information about the men or the car is asked to leave a message for Officer Robert Tibor at 508-872-1212.
