EAST ORANGE - Friends and family of three men killed in a crash on a busy East Orange road say they have more questions than answers about what happened to their loved ones.

Authorities are investigating the crash that also injured two women shortly before 9 p.m. Wednesday on South Grove Street.
    
Officials say the women were in an SUV that collided with a car carrying the men. The vehicles came to a rest near a New Jersey Transit bus.

Family identified the deceased victims as Tyrief Parker, the driver, Dean Scovil, 24, and Kabeer Bishop, 20. 

Bishop's aunt and sister say Kabeer was just six blocks away from his home. 

Witnesses say the car that the men were in may have been speeding, and was clipped by the SUV. 

The passengers of the SUV, two women ages 54 and 74, escaped with minor injuries. 
    
The Essex County Prosecutor's Office says several passengers on the bus were treated for minor injuries when it stopped to avoid the crash.

So far, no charges have been filed in the crash.
