Two people died on early Monday evening after a deadly car crash in Brooklyn.

Police said that Christina Wipper, 18, and Philbert Martin Williams, 20, passed away after their car struck a second vehicle while driving along Flatbush Avenue in Marine Park at around 6:30 p.m.

The driver and passenger of the second vehicle, a BMW sports utility vehicle that made a turn on to Avenue U, were taken to the Kings County Hospital Center with minor injuries.

While police said the investigation was ongoing, surveillance video from a nearby store shows a Nissan Maxima driven by Williams driving at a fast speed before hitting the BMW and going out of frame.

Investigators said Wipper died at the scene. Williams was rushed to Coney Island Hospital, where emergency workers pronounced him as dead.

The accident took place only a few hours before the New York City Police Department announced a 48-hour citywide speeding enforcement crackdown to start midnight on Tuesday, May 20.

Police said fines for speeding range between $90 and $600, and that drivers may also face three to 11 "penalty points" on their driver's licenses if caught speeding.
