Two 19-year-olds from Boulder are dead after a single-vehicle crash on Broadway early Sunday morning.

Boulder police spokeswoman Dionne Waugh said the two victims were in a 2004 Volkswagen traveling south on Broadway about 1:30 a.m. Sunday when the vehicle crashed into a light pole at 15th Street near the University of Colorado Boulder campus.

The female passenger was pronounced dead at the scene, while the male driver was taken to a hospital, where he later died of his injuries.

Neither person has been publicly identified by the Boulder County Coroner’s Office as of early Monday afternoon.

Waugh said investigators suspect alcohol played a role in the crash.
