Two men were found dead outside a car that had crashed into a shallow ravine in Jurupa Valley, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said.

The Coroner’s Office on Tuesday identified the men as Fontana residents Mauricio Juarez, 38, and Guillermo Morales, 41.

Someone reported seeing what they thought was an abandoned white sedan in a brushy area bordered by homes and the Oak Quarry Golf Club around 3:15 p.m. Monday. Deputies found the car, which had damage from an apparent collision, said Sgt. Wenndy Brito-Gonzalez, a sheriff’s spokeswoman. They later discovered two men who were pronounced dead at the scene.

It was unclear how long the car had been there and whether the car had collided with another.

“The circumstances surrounding the incident are currently under investigation,” Brito-Gonzalez said.
