Jul. 1—The Albuquerque Police Department is asking for help identifying two teenage girls who were killed in a suspicious crash early Thursday morning.

The deadly crash occurred around 12:30 a.m. near Central and Tingley and homicide detectives are investigating whether it was "the result of an intentional act," according to Gilbert Gallegos, an APD spokesman.

Police have not released details about the events they believe led up to the crash or the deaths of the teens.

Gallegos said the girls are between the ages of 14 and 18 and were passengers in the car that crashed. Two males, including the car's driver, were taken to the hospital to be treated for their injuries. Another car, unoccupied, was found nearby on Central and Rio Grande.

Gallegos described one girl as 5 feet 1 inch tall and weighing 124 pounds. She is possibly Hispanic or Native American, has reddish brown hair and was wearing a maroon bralette, gray shorts and socks and black and white Nike shoes.

The other girl was 4 feet 9 inches tall and weighed 93 pounds. She is possibly white or Hispanic, has blonde or light brown hair dyed a pinkish purple and was wearing blue jeans, a black and white checkered shirt and black bra and socks.
