Police are investigating a deadly crash in downtown Seattle.

The accident happened just after 2 a.m. Saturday. A car hit a concrete barrier and rolled over near the Washington State Convention Center.
  
Officers say three men in their late 20's and early 30's were inside the BMW at the time of the crash.
  
Investigators believe the driver tried to negotiate the Union Street exit curve and lost control.

A witness heard the crash.

"Heard this loud sound... and the car was literally just screeching down, screeching down,” he said.

One man in the car died at the scene. The driver and the other passenger were taken to Harborview Medical Center and are expected to be okay.
