The victims were identified as Saul E. Solis, 22, of Kansas City and Joe E. Parks, 18, of Champaign, Ill.
The accident was reported at 1:45 a.m. on South Washington Street and Greenwood Circle. The Missouri Highway Patrol reported that the southbound 2010 Hyundai, driven by Solis was traveling at high rate of speed, crested a hill, lost control and struck a tree.
Solis and Parks died at the scene. Another passenger, a 22-year-old Independence woman, was seriously injured. She was taken to Research Medical Center.
Solis was wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident but Parks and the other passenger did not, according to the highway patrol.
