SAN FRANCISCO — A 21-year-old Fremont man may have been speeding before he was killed in a two-vehicle crash in San Francisco early Saturday morning.

James Hunt of Fremont was alone in his car when it rear-ended a Geo Prizm at Junipero Serra Boulevard and 19th Avenue at about 4:25 a.m., police said. Hunt was reportedly driving as fast as 100 mph.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The two occupants of the Geo Prizm, brothers from San Rafael, remain in critical condition.

Police spokeswoman Lt. Lyn Tomioka said today that an investigation into the crash is ongoing, but that it does appear Hunt was driving too fast.

"The initial investigation indicates that the driver of the other vehicle was speeding," she said. There was no immediate indication that drugs or alcohol played a role, she added.

An autopsy for Hunt has been scheduled, the medical examiner's office reported.

Injured were Ruedi and Matthias Keller of Lucas Valley. Ruedi, a 2007 Marin Catholic High School graduate who attends San Francisco Culinary Academy, had just picked up his younger brother from San Francisco International Airport.

Matthias, known as "Monty," had arrived home for the holidays from the University of Hawaii, where he is a freshman.

According to an posted on the Internet by the family, both brothers suffered head injuries and were in comas.
