[UPDATE BELOW] Two teenagers were killed and three others injured in a horrific crash on Grand Central Parkway in Queens early this morning.

Officials say the car's 21-year-old driver lost control and hit a guardrail in the parkway's eastbound lane at 188th Street, around 3:50 a.m. this morning. Three of the six passengers were ejected from the car, and cops say two of them, a 16-year-old girl and an 18-year-old boy, were pronounced dead at the scene. "There was a lot of honking and screeching," a witness who lives close to the scene of the accident told CBS News.

Three other victims, ages 17, 19 and 21, are being treated for minor injuries at an area hospital, and a 17-year-old boy is listed in serious condition, but cops say he or she is not likely to die. Authorities believe the driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash. He reportedly walked away from the scene with minor injuries, and was taken into custody this morning; charges against him are currently pending.

[Update 2:43 p.m.] The NYPD says they have charged the driver of the car, 20-year-old Queens resident Madosh Hansraj, with two counts of manslaughter, one count of Felony Assault and two counts of criminally negligent homicide along speeding and driving with impaired ability. They have also identified the deceased as 17-year-old Meera Dukharan and 18-year-old Anil Persaud, both Queens residents. According to the NYPD:

Further investigation by the Highway Patrol's Collision Investigation Squad revealed that the 1996 Honda was traveling in the center lane at a high rate of speed then moved into the right lane loosing control of the vehicle. The driver began to brake causing the vehicle to slide off the roadway onto the shoulder and into the guardrail. The impact caused three unrestrained occupants in the rear seats to be ejected from the rear window of the vehicle.
