UPDATE: Authorities Wednesday night identified the two former Lakeland Regional High School students killed in a crash hours earlier in Ringwood.

Victor Weinpel, 19, of Wanaque, lost control of a 1999 Toyota Corolla after it hit a guardrail on Greenwood Lake Turnpike north of Skyline Drive around 3:15 p.m., authorities said.

The sedan crossed into the oncoming lane and was T-boned by a 2014 Chevy commercial van.

Weinpel and his passenger, a 17-year-old boy from West Milford identified by family and friends as John Carlson, were pronounced dead at the scene.

The van driver, 64-year-old Paul Barker of Ringwood, was taken to St. Joseph's Regional University Hospital with minor injuries, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes and Ringwood Police Chief Joseph Walker said.
