Two young men were killed when the car they were in left the road and flipped over in the Abitibi region. 

Provincial police spokesperson Claude Denis said officers were called to an accident just after 10 p.m. near Preissac.

"The car first hit a ditch and then a pole and then finished flipped over," said Denis.
