MAMARONECK, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – Two people were killed in a crash involving a car and a garbage truck in Westchester County.
Police said the 2005 Acura collided with the garbage truck around 7:15 a.m. Saturday on West Boston Post Road in front of Mamaroneck High School.
The Acura driver, identified as 20-year-old Rolando Oliveros, and his passenger, 17-year-old Omar Ayala, were pronounced dead at the scene.
The truck driver was taken to Sound Shore Medical Center for evaluation.
“It’s terrible, horrible,” one man said.
“Totally disastrous. Awful, awful situation,” another added. “There’s just no need to go down these roads so fast. You’re in a community. There’s a high school across the street.”
Police said the cause of the crash is under investigation, but it appears speed was a factor.
