PEARL RIVER, New York -- Two teenagers were killed after a car crashed off of an overpass onto train tracks and burst into flames in Rockland County.

New Jersey Transit says the car went on the train tracks at West Crooked Hill Road and Railroad Avenue in Pearl River and then burst into flames.

The accident involved a Porsche and a Volkswagen Jetta. Two teens inside the Porsche, Saniha Cekic, 15, and Altin Nezaj, 17, were pronounced dead at the hospital.

The driver of the Porsche was transported to Westchester Medical Center with serious injuries. The driver of the Jetta was not injured.
