JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — Prosecutors say a pregnant woman and a child are among the three people killed in an SUV crash that hurt six others in northern New Jersey.
The crash happened Saturday night on Route 15 in Jefferson Township. The cause remained under investigation Sunday.
Morris County prosecutors say 62-year-old Lucila Colon and 11-year-old Tevia Booth died at the scene, while 36-year-old Julissa Colon died later at a hospital. Julissa Colon was five months pregnant, and her fetus didn't survive. All lived in Jersey City.
The SUV's driver, 37-year-old Luis Torres of Jersey City, was being held Sunday on $750,000 cash bail. He's charged with three counts each of aggravated manslaughter and vehicular homicide and five counts of assault by auto.
It wasn't immediately clear whether Torres had an attorney.
