Two people lost their lives on Sunday after their speeding Porsche lost control, and flew into the second storey of a building in New Jersey.
The car, a red Porsche Boxster convertible, was “traveling at a high rate of speed” when it hit a median and eventually crash-landed into the second-story offices of Exit Realty Elite, Toms River Police said.
According to a report by CNN, the car was driven by Braden DeMartin, 22, police said. DeMartin and his passenger, 23-year-old Daniel Foley — both of Toms River — were pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.
Shocking photos from the scene show a gaping hole in the second story of the brick building.
Photos of the 2010 Porsche Boxster show the severe damage it sustained in the crash, its rear completely crushed and mangled.
Skid marks were visible across the four lanes of the road leading up to the building.
After the crash Toms River building inspector, John Gerrity, deemed the building structurally unsafe.
However authorities managed to extract the vehicle.
Both DeMartin and Foley were dead when emergency services arrived at the scene.
Later on Sunday authorities confirmed their identities and that DeMartin was the driver.
DeMartin was driving the convertible car, cops said. Both were deceased when units arrived on scene
On Facebook Sunday, a friend shared an image of the pair along with the caption:
‘RIP Braden DeMartin and Dan Foley. Will never forget the days we spent on the golf course together. Always made everything more fun.’
