    A man died after police say a teen girl drove a car into a building over the weekend.

    Police say the 17-year-old girl was driving on Orange Street and approaching the S 2nd Street intersection in Millville, N.J. around 3:15 a.m. Saturday. The girl crossed the intersection when she somehow lost control of her vehicle and crashed into the southeast corner of an empty building.

    One of the passengers, 21-year-old David Rosado of Millville, died in the crash. Another passenger, Rosado's 19-year-old brother Brian, also of Millville, was injured in the crash. He remains in critical condition at Atlantic City Medical Center. The third passenger, 24-year-old Julio Lopes, of Vineland, was taken to the Cooper Trauma Center where he is in critical but stable condition. Finally, the teen driver is in critical but stable condition at a regional hospital.

    The Millville Police Department Fatal Crash Unit is currently investigating the accident. Officials say alcohol may have played a role but they have not yet confirmed this. Charges have not yet been filed.

    According to New Jersey state law, drivers between the ages of 16 and 20 with a probationary license are not allowed to drive between 11:01 p.m. and 5 a.m. They are also only allowed to transport one passenger unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
