Authorities responded to a horrific car crash on Staten Island that left three people dead and several others injured Sunday night, police said.

All of the deceased victims were teenagers, officials said. They were riding in a red Ford Mustang which collided with a GMC Yukon, New York Daily News reported.  

Police responded to the crash that happened on Victory Boulevard in the Tottenville neighborhood around 8:50 p.m., per the report.

The impact of the collision was enough to break the Mustang into two pieces, photos and videos at the scene showed. 

The victims included two girls, 16 and 15, and a boy, 15, police said. The passengers of the SUV are in stable condition, WABC reported.

Photos also appear to show the front half of the barely-recognizable Mustang resting off the side of the road, missing its front bumper, with airbags blown, and its windows shattered across the street.
