PARAMUS, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a woman was driving drunk when her car overturned on a New Jersey highway and ended up in a mall parking lot, killing two other women.

Bergen County prosecutors say Jasmine Cruz faces two counts of death by auto. The 23-year-old Garfield resident was seriously injured in Sunday’s crash on eastbound Route 4 in Paramus and it wasn’t known Monday if she’s retained an attorney.

Authorities say all four people in the vehicle were ejected from the car but were found nearby.

Twenty-year-old Mariah Gomez and 19-year-old Jenna DiSclafani, both of Garfield, were killed. Another passenger, 23-year-old Kevin Coiro, suffered injuries that aren’t considered life-threatening.

Authorities say the car ended up in the Bergen Town Centre parking lot. The mall wasn’t open at the time of the crash.
