NEWARK - A violent crash at a busy Newark intersection killed one man and injured two others.

The crash happened at around 10:30 a.m. at the intersection of Springfield and Morris avenues, about a block from a firehouse.

The violent impact tore the minivan apart, killing the person in the passenger seat.

Essex County prosecutors say the two drivers were taken to the hospital. Both are expected to survive.

Police say the truck that was speeding belongs to Essex Plumbing Supply. Police have not released the name of the victims.
