The crash was reported about 3:10 a.m. near the intersection of Harvard Avenue and Michelson Drive, Capt. Larry Kurtz said.

One occupant in the Infiniti was pulled to safety, but firefighters declared two men dead in the other car, a Hyundai Elantra, Kurtz said.

Coroner’s officials identified the men as Kasean Herrera, a 23-year-old Irvine resident, and Jeremy Shankling, 24, of Los Angeles.

Two women who were also in the Elantra suffered traumatic injuries in the crash.

The Irvine Police Department also responded to the crash, video from the scene showed. No further details were available Saturday.

A number of streets near the crash scene had been closed but reopened around 5 p.m.
