MORRISTOWN, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey teenager has pleaded not guilty to criminal charges stemming from a car crash that killed two high school classmates this summer.

The teen did not speak Wednesday during his initial appearance in state Superior Court in Morris County. Instead, his attorney entered not guilty pleas to two counts of death by auto and one count of assault by auto.

The charges stem from a July 26 crash in Randolph. The two people killed in the crash, Jack Timmerman and Calvin Verduga, were friends who played on Randolph High School’s football team.

The 17-year-old defendant’s name has not been released due to his age. Authorities have said the youth was speeding down a road when he lost control of the car and hit a tree.
