Guzman and both occupants of the Toyota were taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

State Police spokesman Matthew Guarino said the women who were killed were not wearing seat belts, and that was a factor in their deaths.

While public safety responders were on scene, the Jamaicaway remained closed; it reopened at 6:35 a.m.
