Officer Loretta Cool said the fleeing car was not being chased by police at the time, about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, when the driver lost control at a construction site 10 blocks from the store.
Both men were ejected and died at the scene.
Cool says the clerk suffered a minor injury in a confrontation.
She says the men left the store with beer but left much of it in the parking lot as they sped away.
