At least five other students from the university were injured in the accident early on Saturday, including one who was in critical condition.
Boston University spokesman Colin Riley released the ages and hometowns of those killed. He said 20-year-old Daniela Lekhno had originally been from Seagate, Brooklyn before moving to Manalapan, New Jersey, 21-year-old Austin Brashears was from Huntington Beach, Calif. and the parents of 21-year-old Roch Jauberty live in Paris.
Police said the students were traveling in a minivan near the North Island vacation town of Taupo when the vehicle drifted to the side of the road and then rolled when the driver tried to correct course.
