Two Friends Killed After Their Speeding Porsche Crashes Into Second Story Of Building

Two people were killed Sunday morning after a red Porsche went airborne and crashed into the second floor of a commercial building in Toms River, New Jersey, police said.

Braden DeMartin and Daniel Foley, aged 22 and 23 respectively, were allegedly speeding in the red 2010 Porsche Boxster convertible, going northbound on Hooper Avenue in the town of Toms River, on Sunday, November 10.

The auto, a red Porsche Boxster convertible, was "traveling at a high rate of speed" when it hit a median and eventually crash-landed into the second-story offices of Exit Realty Elite, Toms River Police said.

Foley was a passenger in the vehicle. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene. Skid marks could be seen in the area that crossed over four lanes of road leading to the embankment.

The building was unoccupied at the time of the crash, according to Sgt. Vincent Pedalino.

The Ocean County Prosecutor's Office called the crash "an unimaginable accident" as it sent "deepest sympathy to the families of these two young men" in a Facebook post.

The two are believed to have been the only occupants of the vehicle. Also assisting on scene were Ocean County Prosecutors Office, Toms River Fire Company Stations 29 & 30, Toms River Technical Rescue Task Force, Brick Technical Rescue Task Force, Toms River Office of Emergency Management, Ocean County Fire Coordinators, Silverton EMS, and the Ocean County Sheriffs Department.
