HAMMONTON — Two teenage brothers and a Pennsylvania woman were killed when a car driven by the teens' older brother crashed on the Atlantic City Expressway, state police said.

The driver, a 19-year-old Philadelphia man, was headed eastbound around 3:10 p.m. Sunday when the car veered off the highway near milepost 23.3 in Hammonton, then overturned and struck some trees.

Maryha Toro, 19, of Philadelphia, and the two brothers — Marcus Crawford, 16 and Emmanuel Crawford, 15, both of Camden — were killed in the crash. The driver, whose name was not released, suffered undisclosed “moderate” injuries and was being treated at a hospital, state police said.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
