CORPUS CHRISTI - The names of two men killed in last night's crash on South Padre Island Drive were released a short time ago by the Medical Examiner's office.
20-year-old Everett Tyler Bailey and 27-year-old Luis Javier Ramirez Jr. died of head trauma after being struck along the highway before the Paul Jones exit late last night.
It's not clear of the Isuzu Rodeo was stopped along the side of the road or had some type of mechanical problem that caused the driver to lose control. This morning police said investigators are also looking at the possibility that alcohol or speeding may have played a role in the crash.
At some point the Isuzu was hit hard by a Chevy Silverado 3500. Both men in the SUV died at the scene. A Chevy Silverado 1500 and a Volvo S80 were also involved in the crash. Police say two others suffered injuries, but are expected to survive.
