NORTH BERGEN, N.J. (AP) — Three men were killed and two others were injured when the car they were in crashed on a northern New Jersey highway.

The crash occurred about 3:50 a.m. Saturday on Route 3 East in North Bergen. It happened just before the approach to Route 495, which leads to the Lincoln Tunnel into New York City.

Authorities say all four passengers were thrown from the car after it hit a concrete pillar and rolled over several times. The men ranged in age from 19 to 31; it was not immediately known if any of them were related.

A stretch of the highway was closed for several hours because of the crash.
