Two women were killed when the vehicle they were in ran off the roadway and struck trees on Interstate 78 in Bernards Township early Thursday morning, State Police said.

Blessings to the family, and I know the driver from when he was in grammar school... from our old block on Van Nostrand Ave in Jersey City. Blessings to the family and pray Davante gets better.
