2 young people died and 2 others were injured in a car crash on the Saw Mill Parkway near Yonkers, NY. Investigation is still ongoing as to what exactly happened but speed seems to be a factor. Previous to the accident, the group of teenagers had visited friends in several locations. They were heading South on the Saw Mill River Parkway around 12:45 am when the driver lost control of the vehicle and rolled over. The accident occurred near the interchange with the Cross Country Parkway.
When the police and EMT arrived they found 17 year old Ali Alghaithi, a Manhattan resident, dead outside the vehicle. 17 year old Abdlwahab (Abdul) Abushaar was still alive but he later died from his injuries. Two other teens, a 15 year old and an 18 year old were seriously injured and are still hospitalized.
Two of the teens were working together at a cellphone store in Manhattan.
