MASPETH (WABC) -- Three men were killed when a car careened into a concrete barrier in the Maspeth section of Queens.
The driver of the vehicle apparently lost control westbound on Laurel Hill Boulevard at around 10:30 p.m. last night.
The 1993 Volvo, which witnesses said was traveling at a high rate of speed, careened into a concrete barrier.
Eyewitness News is told the 26-year-old driver and his two passengers -- both 27-year-old men -- were all rushed to Elmhurst Hospital, where they were pronounced dead.
The cause of the crash is under investigation, but investigators said alcohol may have been a factor.
