    Two people are dead and four others injured in a multi-vehicle crash on I-95 North in Bensalem, Pa., according to police.

    The accident happened around 6:30 p.m. Saturday near Street Road and Route 413.

    Investigators say 19-year-old Carlee Tran of Philadelphia was traveling southbound and veered off the road. Police say she hit the northbound guardrail and went airborne hitting 51-year-old Brian McHugh of Pennington, Mercer County who was traveling in the northbound lanes. Tran and McHugh died in the crash, according to authorities.

    Tran was a student at Neumann University and her friends say when they saw the accident on television, they knew something was wrong. Tran's boyfriend talked to NBC10's Monique Braxton on Sunday.

    "She was studying early childhood education because we were planning to open up a daycare together," Damon Williamson, victim's boyfriend.

    A third car was also involved. That driver and three passengers from McHugh's car were taken to the hospital. No word on their conditions.

    The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
