New York, NYTwo off-duty police officers were killed and four women were injured in a tragic auto accident when their car hit a guardrail on the Bronx River Parkway.

The accident occurred around 6:30 am on Sunday as the vehicle's passengers were was returning home from a party in a 2009 Nissan Altima. The car struck a guardrail near the 233rd Street exit in the Bronx, causing the vehicle to flip and roll until it smashed into a pole.

Officers Edwin Paulino, 25, and Kim Hoyoung, 32, were pinned inside the vehicle and pronounced dead on the scene. The four women were said to be in serious but stable condition. One told her mother that the girls had never met the officers before that evening and were accepting their offer for a ride home from a party at the time of the incident, according to the New York Times.

Investigators on the scene have attributed the accident to driver inattentiveness as opposed to mechanical failure or foul play, though officials are holding off on establishing alcohol as a cause, pending the results of a post-mortem blood test.
