Three dead, two hurt in East Orange crash
EAST ORANGE (AP) --Authorities are investigating a crash that killed three men and injured two women in north Jersey.
The accident happened shortly before 9 p.m. Wednesday on South Grove Street in East Orange.
Officials say the women were in an SUV that collided with a car carrying the men. The vehicles came to a rest near a New Jersey Transit bus.
The Essex County Prosecutor's Office says several passengers were treated for minor injuries when the bus stopped to avoid the crash.
The women were taken to a hospital with injuries that are described as not life-threatening.
Authorities are withholding the names of the victims until their relatives are notified.
