MAHWAH, N.J. -- A Lexus barreled off Route 287 in Mahwah in the middle of the night, hitting several trees, overturning and killing its two occupants, authorities told Daily Voice.

Both men were ejected from the car, New Jersey State Police said.

One of them ended up pinned beneath the vehicle, a witness told Daily Voice.

DOT workers found the vehicle Monday morning about 15-20 yards off the highway at milepost 62.5, Police Chief James Batelli said.

"There were no telltale signs from the road that anything had happened," a witness told Daily Voice. "It went right into woods."
