Bremerton Police responded to the fatal wreck in the area of Wheaton Way and Sheridan Road at around 2:00 a.m.
An early investigation indicates a 21-year-old New Jersey man was driving northbound on Wheaton Way at a high rate of speed when he lost control after veering into the southbound lane. The vehicle then went airborne and slammed into a nearby building.
Two male passengers from California, a 21-year-old Vacaville resident and a 23-year-old Merced resident, were pronounced deceased on the scene. The Kitsap County Coroner’s Office have since identified the cause of death for both men as blunt force trauma.
