  FREEHOLD – Two teenagers died in a single car crash after the driver lost control causing the car to overturn Tuesday evening, officials said.

  Around 10:30 p.m., a 17-year-old boy from Howell was driving south on Route 9 when he changed lanes, causing him to lose control of the car. As a result, the car spun out and ran off the roadway, hitting a curb and several concrete bollards. The car continued to roll over and finally stopped in front of 3468 Route 9, officials said.

  Two passengers, a 15-year-old boy from Allentown and a 17-year-old boy from Manalapan, were both pronounced dead after the crash.

  The driver and two other passengers were taken to a local hospital. The driver and one passenger, a 15-year-old Manalapan girl, were treated for minor injuries and subsequently released. One other passenger, a 17-year-old Allentown boy, remains held pending medical observation, officials said.
