JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) -- Authorities have released the names of two people killed in an early morning crash in Jersey City over the weekend.

The Hudson County prosecutor's office says 25-year-old Mario Guevara and 24-year-old Heather Acosta were killed in the 3 a.m. Sunday crash on Tonnelle Avenue.

Officials said both Union City residents were apparently sitting in the rear seats of a small red car involved in the crash.
