NJ Teen Kills Self, Two Others In Suspected Car Crash Suicide

(Rebecca Fishbein) A 15-year-old from Edison, NJ was killed in a car accident early Tuesday morning that claimed the lives of two other people, and investigators say they found a suicide note written on the teen's arm. It's believed he intentionally caused the crash in order to kill himself.

Authorities say Srijan Saha, 15, was killed around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, driving his parents' Honda Civic into oncoming traffic on Route 27. According to police, he struck a Nissan Altima head on; it was carrying Edison residents Mohammed Zia, 46, and his brother-in-law Ali Behzad, 36. Behzad and Saha were pronounced dead at the scene, and Zia was transported to an area hospital, where he died a few hours later. Family members say Behzad and Zia, who were each fathers with three children, were out for a late-night cup of coffee at the time.

Saha had reportedly taken his parents' car without permission, and investigators say they discovered a suicide note written on his arm, though they have not released details regarding its content. They are now treating the crash as a suicide/homicide.
