A Thursday morning wreck on Interstate 80 that resulted in two fatalities is being investigated as a homicide and kidnapping, according to the Placer County Sheriff's Office.

Placer County sheriff's and CHP units responded to the scene and confirmed the passenger and driver had died. The Sheriff's Office identified the victims as Dayton Holden, 20, of Newcastle as the driver and Devyn Graham, 23, of Dutch Flat as the passenger, according to The Sacramento Bee.

One of two lanes at the scene were closed for investigation as late as 4 p.m. Thursday.
