Authorities have released the identities of the two men killed yesterday afternoon in a three-vehicle crash on the New Jersey Turnpike.
Police responded to the southbound side of the turnpike near mile marker 12.6 (Exit 2) sometime around 5:30 p.m. for a serious motor-vehicle accident.
Upon arrival, a Toyota Sienna driven by Igor Lougovtsov, 46, of Yarmouth, Maine, was on the southbound left lane which was closed to traffic, according to police. The second vehicle, a Volkswagen Passat, driven by Paul Fiorentino, 21, of Point Pleasant, was found behind the Sienna.
The third vehicle - a Toyota Avalon - driven by Nishank Shaw, 24, of Woodbridge, struck the Passat, which then struck the Sienna.
The passengers in the Passant, 21-year-old Rob Critelli, of Summit, and 20-year-old Christopher Calderone, of Brick, were pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
The three drivers - Lougovtsov, Fiorentino and Shaw - were transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The crash remains under investigation.
