The San Francisco Medical Examiner's office has identified the two men killed in an Ingleside car crash this morning as Hayward resident Benjamin Powell and Castro Valley resident Jonathan Johnson. Both were 18 years old.

The car carrying Powell and Johnson apparently crashed into a utility pole on Ocean Avenue at about 12:45 a.m., fatally ejecting the two men and leaving a third with life-threatening injuries. The car's 14-year-old driver has been charged with vehicular manslaughter, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Police have not yet said whether the driver was intoxicated, or otherwise described what led to the crash.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
