Two students at Babson College were killed in a fiery crash in Wellesley overnight when their car veered off the road and hit a tree, according to police and school officials.

The students, whose names were not released, were driving a Porsche Cayman south on Forest Street at about 11:30 p.m., according to a statement from Wellesley police. A preliminary investigation found that the car was traveling too fast on a road where the speed limit is 30 miles per hour, police said.

The Porsche hit a tree near the intersection with Berkshire Road. When police arrived, flames had engulfed the car. Both students died at the scene.

A spokesman for Babson College confirmed that the passengers in the car were students.
