MAHWAH TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — Police have released the names of three people killed Tuesday in a fiery crash on Interstate 287 in New Jersey.

Forty-two-year-old Santiago F. Mercado and his son, 22-year-old Santiago M. Mercado, both of Nyack, New York, and 58-year-old Harry Bulatowicz of Ellenville, New York, were pronounced dead at the scene.

The State Police say the Mercados were helping Bulatowicz repair his cement truck, which was disabled along the shoulder of 287 near Mahwah. All three worked for Concrete on Demand of Oakland, New Jersey.

Police say the men were outside the truck when they were fatally struck by a tractor-trailer driven by 58-year-old Adelbert McKee of Ellenville. Police say no charges have been filed but the investigation is ongoing.

Three people suffered minor injuries when the tractor-trailer struck another car.
