A single-car crash in Holbrook early Saturday morning claimed the lives of two Suffolk County men, authorities said.

Suffolk County police said 30-year-old Jankel Lenin Nolasco Lemus of Brentwood was driving a 2005 Honda eastbound on Union Avenue at 3:45 a.m. when the vehicle left the roadway and slammed into a pole near Maple Avenue.

Lemus was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. His passenger, 24-year-old Denis Humberto Delcid Cerrato of Ronkonkoma, was transported to Stony Brook University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Investigators believe speed and weather conditions were contributing factors in the crash, police said.

Police impounded the car for a safety check.

The crash is still under investigation.

Detectives ask anyone with information on the crash to call the Sixth Squad at 631-854-8652.
