3 killed, several injured following Jersey City multi-vehicle crash

At least three people were killed, and three others injured, following a car crash Monday in Jersey City, the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office said.

According to police, there was a two-car collision involving a BMW SUV and a Kia sedan on Paterson Plank Road south of Congress Street in Jersey City.

The driver of the Kia has been identified as 26-year-old Dylan Weidenfeld from Jersey City.

The BMW was carrying five individuals at the time of the crash. 

Two passengers from that vehicle were pronounced dead, and a 19-year-old girl is in critical condition. Both the driver and the front seat passenger suffered non-life-threatening injuries. 

Their identities have not been released.

There was no immediate word on what caused the crash, although speed may have played a role.

The Hudson County Regional Collision Investigation Unit are currently in the process of notifying the families involved.
