Three teens, including two brothers who attended a South Jersey high school, were killed in a crash on the Atlantic City Expressway Sunday afternoon. 

The crash occurred around 3:10 p.m. near milepost 23.2 on the eastbound AC Expressway in Hammonton, New Jersey. The teens were in a car driven by the brothers' older brother when it went off the road and overturned, striking multiple trees.

On Monday, New Jersey State Police identified the victims of the crash as 15-year-old Emmanual "Manny" Crawford, his brother, 16-year-old Marcus Crawford, both of Camden, and 19-year-old Maryha Toro, of Philadelphia.

The driver was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Pennsauken High School confirmed to NBC10 that the Crawford brothers attended the school. Toro was dating the older brother Nigel Crawford, the school district said. Nigel Crawford graduated from Pennsauken High last spring.

The Crawford brothers died on the eve of the first of Pennsauken High School's Class of 2020 graduation, which is set for Monday night. Their older sister Jenette will skip receiving her diploma, the district said.

The cause of the crash remained under investigation Monday.
