An investigation was underway Monday into a two-vehicle collision at an Escondido intersection that killed both drivers.

The crash involving a 1990 Nissan 300ZX and a 2006 Volvo S40 occurred at 9:51 p.m. Sunday at Broadway and Country Club Drive, according to Escondido police Lt. Kevin Toth.

Both drivers died at the scene, according to Toth, who said neither vehicle was carrying any passengers.

Toth said the 300ZX had been traveling south on Broadway and the Volvo was eastbound on Country Club Drive. Both cars collided upon entering the intersection, which is controlled by a traffic signal, sending both vehicles south on Broadway. It was unclear who had the right-of-way, he said.
