A 2005 Dodge Neon was heading south on West Rawson Bridge Road when it crossed the centerline at a curve and hit a tree on the west side of the road, according to a news release.

Bradley J. Kass, the 25-year-old driver, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Robert Sloan Jr., the 22-year-old passenger, was taken to Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital near Lake Barrington, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Both of the men had to be extricated.

Kass was not wearing a seat belt and Sloan was, police said. The air bags did not deploy.

An autopsy was completed Friday, though investigators are waiting for toxicology reports to help determine a cause of death. Alcohol might have been a factor in the crash, police said.

The McHenry County coroner's office and Cary Fire Protection District also responded to the scene.

The coroner's and sheriff's offices continue to investigate. Officials have no reason to believe the driver was texting, police said.
