LAKEHURST, N.J. (AP) — Authorities in southern New Jersey say a high school baseball player was killed and another person was critically injured in a two-car crash that occurred just hours before the teen’s team was scheduled to play in a local tournament.

No charges have been filed in connection with Friday night’s crash in Lakehurst. But the cause of the accident remained under investigation Saturday.
