NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- A horrific two-car crash that occurred on Lincoln Avenue on Tuesday has left five young men, all in their 20s, hospitalized, with one in critical condition with head injuries.

Police used a drone to help with the investigation due to the amount of damage to both cars, and the amount of debris littering the roadway. Police said speed may have been a factor with the amount of damage, according to lohud.com.

The father of one of young man in critical condition said the group was headed to a graduation.
