A car accident in Smithtown this morning killed two teenagers. They were both thrown from the vehicle they were passengers in after it hit another car and a guardrail. The accident happened on Jericho Turnpike. The driver of the car is a 17-year-old student at Smithtown High School West.
The two teens were pronounced dead at the scene, Compagnone said. It is not known whether they were wearing seat belts, he said.
“They were really good, nice kids, and they had a very bright future ahead of them,” said principal John Dolan.
The driver of the car was driving on a junior license which means he was not allowed to drive to school or with passengers in the car that are not his parents. He received a head injury in the crash. Both the driver of the other car and her passenger were also injured in the crash.
