State police say the accident occurred just before midnight Saturday on Route 78 in Newark, though the cause of the crash remains under investigation.

The car driven by 27-year-old Diego Ayoso of Kearny was eastbound on the highway when it spun out of control near milemarker 57, rammed a barrier and crossed over into the express lanes. The car then struck a concrete and metal fence in the median, overturned and eventually ended up in the eastbound local lanes.

Ayoso and his 44-year-old passenger, Celinda Cuichta of East Brunswick, were both pronounced dead at the scene around 12:35 a.m. Sunday.

No other vehicles were involved in the accident.
