Two young men were killed after their speeding Porsche crashed into the second story of a building in New Jersey on Sunday.
According to police, 22-year-old driver Braden DeMartin and his passenger, 23-year-old Daniel Foley — both of Toms River — were pronounced dead at the scene after their speeding car lost control, launched off an embankment and flew into the second story of a building.
The red Porsche Boxster convertible that the pair was riding in was reportedly “traveling at a high rate of speed” when it hit a median and eventually crash-landed into the second-story offices of Exit Realty Elite, Toms River Police said. No one was inside the building at the time of the crash.
The building, which the real estate agency shares with a software company and a family therapist, has been deemed “unsafe,” police said. The accident occurred around 6:30 a.m. on Hooper Avenue between Indian Hill Road and College Drive. The area was shut down for about seven hours while it was under investigation by Toms River Traffic Safety officers.
DeMartin and Foley are believed to have been the only occupants of the vehicle.
