A Plainview, Long Island teenager is dead. A second remains in critical condition Saturday night after their compact car smashed first into stone wall and then into a tree. The 1991 Volkswagen was hauled to an impound lot in Mineola.

According to police, the car was traveling at a high rate of speed, when 16-year-old Brian Assa lost control.

The vehicle drifted across Woodbury road and smashed into the overpass of the Seaford Oyster Bay Expressway.

Both Assa and a second teen were wearing seatbelts.

The other victim was rushed to Nassau University Medical Center.
