At East 29th Street the Toyota struck a black Chevy Camaro head-on.

The driver and a passenger in the Toyota were pronounced dead at the scene.

A front-seat passenger of the Chevy suffered live-threatening injuries and was listed in “guarded” condition, police said.

The driver of the Chevy was injured and was taken to a hospital in stable condition.
