Two South Carolina men have been identified as the victims of a double fatal DUI crash in Lancaster that also left two children hurt, officials said.

Luis “Kiko” Hernandez-Gomez, 23, and Luis “Poncho” Gomez-Roman, 22, both of Lancaster, were killed in the crash around 9 p.m. Friday at the intersection of Meeting Street and Woodland Drive, said Karla Knight-Deese, Lancaster County Coroner.

The car the victims were in was struck by an SUV driven by Quinton Lamar Harris, 34, of Lancaster, police said. Two children who were in Harris’ SUV were hurt and taken to a hospital, officials said. The children’s names and conditions were not available Monday.

Harris was charged Saturday with two counts of felony DUI resulting in death, and child endangerment, according to the Lancaster Police Department and court records.
