A New Jersey Transit train struck and killed two teenagers and injured a third.
NJ Transit spokeswoman Penny Bassett Hackett says the three were on a railroad bridge over Route 46 in Wayne when the train came down the tracks at 9:45 p.m. Sunday.
The dead are identified as 16-year-old Alan Mendez of Wayne and 17-year-old Nicholas Sabina of Fairfield.
Bassett Hackett says a 15-year-old from Little Falls was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries after he jumped down an embankment.
The train was headed to a maintenance yard in Kearny and was not carrying passengers.
Bassett Hackett says NJ Transit police are trying to determine why the boys were on the tracks.
She called the accident a tragedy for both the families and the train crew.
