A violent wreck tore a car apart and left two teenagers dead along a busy Delaware County road early Monday.
The Christmas Eve crash just after 1 a.m. left the front of the car on one side of MacDade Boulevard, near Swarthmore Avenue in Folsom, Pennsylvania, and the cab of the car about a block away against a nearby utility pole.
Officials said 19-year-old Alexander Gray and 18-year-old Christian Bauerle, both of Wilmington, Delaware, were pronounced dead at the scene.

It was unclear exactly what caused the driver to lose control of the car as the driver went east on MacDade. Ridley Township Police Capt. Scott Willoughby said, however, speed is suspected as a factor in the crash. He said the car's speed was estimated at 60 to 70 mph in an area with a speed limit of 35 mph.
Pieces of debris littered the road and nearby parking lots. The road was closed for hours before reopening before daybreak Monday.
The crash remains under investigation.
