WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.-- Two people died following an early Saturday morning crash in West Palm Beach, according to police.

A Nissan Altima heading north, and traveling at a high rate of speed on Australian Avenue, struck a Toyota Camry which was turning south on Australian from Banyan Boulevard, police said.

The impact sent both vehicles about 350 feet forward and caused the Altima to crash into a tree and slide down an embankment, investigators said. 

The front passengers in both cars died from their injuries. 

Police identified them as  35-year-old Sahara Wyne, who was in the Toyota, and 25-year-old Cameron Dale.

A man driving the Toyota is hospitalized and police are not sure if he will survive. 

The driver of the Nissan suffered two broken legs and a rear passenger sustained non-life threatening injuries but was charged with carrying a concealed firearm, investigators said.

Police are asking for witnesses to contact West Palm Beach Traffic Homicide Investigator Munoz at 561-822-1889.

The crash remains under investigation.
