Shocking Moment The Mustang driven by a 16-year-old teenager was hit by an SUV before crashing into a tree and killing 3 teenagers

Surveillance footage shows the shocking moment a Mustang, driven by a 16-year-old boy, sped through an intersection before being hit by an SUV and splitting in half after hitting a tree, killing three people.

Ring camera footage, obtained by Staten Island Advance, shows the tragic moment siblings Jesie Gil, 15, and Fernanda Gil, 16, and their friend Ashley Rodriguez, 15, died on Saturday night.

The driver, 16, who has not been identified, was seen driving a luxury car on Hylan Boulevard as the 2017 GMC Yukon turned left.

The Mustang can be seen veering toward the curb before being seen cutting the corner of the Yukon, who is turning a corner. The car swerved from the camera and reportedly hit a tree, causing two 15-year-olds in the back seat to be thrown from the vehicle.

It returned to Ring’s camera view, circled out onto the highway, before shooting across and crashing into a telephone pole.

After the two collided, the Mustang disappeared from view and crashed into a tree, sending Ashley Rodriguez and Jesie Gil, both 15, out of the car.

According to the NYPD, the red mustang was traveling east at an ‘unsafe speed’, while the Yukon was speeding west and preparing to turn left.

Police couldn’t confirm the speed, as the NYC speed cameras only operate between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. On August 1, it will move to 24 hours, according to the Staten Island Advance.

Fernanda, who was in front of the car, was rushed to Staten Island University Hospital North but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Both Ashley and Jesie were pronounced dead at the scene, while the mustang driver was rushed to hospital where he remains in a critical but stable condition.

A police source told the Staten Island Advance that the driver only had a student permit and should have had a licensed adult in the car.

The red Mustang was completely shattered by the force of the crash, with the air bag shattered and glass shattered all over the road.

The black SUV had four passengers in it, a 44-year-old woman, a 19-year-old woman, a 23-year-old man and an 11-year-old woman.

They all suffered minor injuries and were transported by EMS to Staten Island University Hospital North.

Yukon’s driver, a Maher Asi-Mahmoud, 47, was arrested for driving while having a driver’s license suspended on pending charges.

The NYPD Highway Collision Investigation Team is investigating, and no charges have been filed in connection with the horrific crash.

‘Hylan Boulevard is the Boulevard of Death on Staten Island,’ Transportation Alternatives at Staten Island and South Brooklyn organizer Rose Uscianowski told the Staten Island Advance.

The three teenagers were among 123 traffic deaths in five regions this year.

Tributes have been paid to all three, with Fernanda and Jesie described as having an ‘unbreakable bond.’

Ashley, who was riding in the back of the vehicle with Jesie, had planned Sweet’s 16th birthday party for next week.

Ashley’s sister Giselle Cruz posted a GoFundMe link online, writing: ‘Anything would help my little sister is only 15 years old, a share would even be greatly appreciated.

‘My Ashley, Rest in Peace, the only sister I have now is dead, but flying high. Forever My Little Angel.’

The fundraiser has raised more than $25,000 to its cause.

Fernanda and Jesie’s funeral visit is Friday from 5pm to 9pm at the Martin Hughes Funeral Home on Staten Island.

A family friend of Fernanda and Jesie has also created a GoFundMe page to raise money for the sibling’s funeral.

It had hit $24,000 off its $30,000 target, as of early Friday afternoon.

They wrote: ‘Fernanda is the kindest, wisest, most caring person I have ever known.

‘He has a beautiful soul and is always cheerful. She and her brother have always been so close and have an unbreakable bond.

‘Jessie is a shy person, but very funny at times, and so is Ashley. Fernanda and his family are very close and I can only imagine the pain they are going through right now.

‘Heaven accepts three beautiful nymphs, may they rest in heaven.’

Juan Sanchez, the teenager’s uncle, paid tribute to his nephew, telling the New York Daily News: “It’s been like a nightmare. Their parents are broken.

‘We are trying now [to plan the funeral] with someone who helped us plan the wedding. We’ve never been in this situation before.’

Jesie attended Tottenville High School while her older sister attended New Dorp High School, with relatives confirming they were their parents’ only child.
