The fatal crash occurred at 5:55 p.m. at the intersection of Jefferson Avenue and Kalmia Street.

The driver of the SUV sustained minor injuries.
“The cause of the accident is still being investigated at this time,” said a representative of Wilshire Law Firm. “We express our condolences to the families of the victims, who were taken away too young.”
