Per: NYP – The three teens killed in a horrific Staten Island crash that split their Ford Mustang in two were traveling at an “unsafe speed” before colliding with another vehicle and a tree, launching two of the passengers into the air, police said Monday.
Front passenger Fernanda Gil, 16, and backseat passengers Jesie Gil and Ashley Rodriguez, 15, were identified as the victims killed around 8:45 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Hylan Boulevard and Richard Avenue in Tottenville, authorities said.
Their vehicle was heading east on Hylan Boulevard at an “unsafe speed” and suddenly swerved from the left to the right lane when it was struck on the driver’s side by a 2017 GMC Yukon, heading west on the same street and making a left turn onto southbound Richard Avenue, cops said.
The passenger side of the Mustang then slammed into a tree, causing it to split in two and ejecting both 15-year-old backseat passengers, authorities said.
The front of the Mustang then continued east on Hylan Boulevard, where it mounted the sidewalk and uprooted a small tree, before striking a telephone pole and coming to a stop, cops said.
Jesie Gil and Ashley Rodriguez were pronounced dead on scene, and Fernanda Gil succumbed to her injuries at Staten Island Hospital North, authorities said.
The relationship between the Gils was not immediately known.
The Mustang driver, a 16-year-old boy, was taken to the same hospital, where he is listed in critical but stable condition.
The Yukon driver, a 47-year-old man, and his four passengers — an 11-year-old girl, a 19-year-old woman, a 44-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man — were taken to the same hospital with minor injuries, cops said.
The driver was also taken into custody for a suspended driver’s license, with charges pending, cops said.
The deadly crash remained under investigation by the NYPD’s Highway Collision Investigation Squad early Monday, cops said.
