An early morning one-vehicle rollover left two Washington Park residents dead, and two in critical condition at and undisclosed hospital.
East St. Louis police said Demonte Scott, 23, of 1617 W. 49th St., Washington Park and Jimmy Liddell Jr., , 29 of 1309 N. 53rd St., Washington Park, were killed. The other victims were in critical condition but were not identified.
Police Chief Michael Floore said it appears that the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed and was unable to maintain control coming out of a curve. He was not sure whether alcohol played a role in the accident.
"We will have to wait for toxicology reports to tell us that," Floore said.
