Troopers say they were called around 6:40 a.m. Thursday to a crash in the area of Brown and Fenwick roads in Fairplains Township.

The car had left the road and hit a tree. Troopers say they found 32-year-old Mitchell Fitzgerald of Orleans and 35-year-old Daniel Bunce of Sheridan dead in the car, which was heavily damaged.

Investigators believe the crash happened in the early morning hours because snow had accumulated on the vehicle.
