BROOKYLN - Members of a tightly knit Orthodox Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn are mourning the loss of two teens who were killed in a car crash early this morning. Police say Eli Shonbron, 16, and Dani King, 15, had come home to Flatbush for the weekend. The two were headed back to their Connecticut yeshiva with nine other students when their van veered off of Interstate 84 and slid down an embankment.
A friend of one of the survivors says the van rolled over three times. Police in Danbury say they are still investigating the crash.
Hundreds attended funeral services for Shonbron and King, which were held in Borough Park this afternoon.
