Two people who died in a weekend car crash on Interstate 95 in Rhode Island have been publicly identified as Boston residents.

Rhode Island State Police on Monday said 24-year-old Romario Cameron and 25-year-old Johny Goyau, both of Boston's Hyde Park neighborhood, died in the crash at about 4 a.m. Sunday in Warwick.

Cameron, who was driving, was ejected from the vehicle when it went off the northbound side of the highway and struck a tree. Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

Two rear seat passengers, ages 18 and 23, were treated at Rhode Island Hospital for non-life threatening injuries. They are also from Hyde Park.

The accident occurred around 4 a.m. Sunday, south of Exit 10, when the car struck a tree off of the interstate.

According to police, all four occupants of the vehicle were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. The cause remains under investigation.
