DELRAN, N.J. -

Three teenagers were injured in a fiery two-car accident Monday night on Route 130 in Delran, police say.

The cars were speeding when one of them struck a utility pole and overturned, trapping two occupants around 9:20 p.m. on the 4000 block of Burlington Pike, in front of the Millside Shopping Center, according to police.

The 17-year-old driver of that car was extricated from the wreckage and flown to Cooper University Hospital with a fractured femur and internal injuries. A 17-year-old front-seat passenger was taken by ambulance to Cooper University Hospital.

Police said the other vehicle burst into flames due to a collision with the first car. Its driver escaped with minor injuries and was taken to Lourdes Medical Center. A passenger of his vehicle refused treatment at the scene.

All three of the injured occupants were reported to be Delran High School students.

Police say they're investigating what caused the crash.

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
