NEWARK, NJ – A fourth victim died in the hospital following a crash last month on Route 22, according to Daily Voice.

Asanti McNair had been among the passengers in last month’s fiery accident on June 9 when the vehicle went up in flames after the driver lost control. She died Saturday morning.

Taylor Hill, 19, Kamal Johnson, 18, and Nashawn Brooks, 20, also lost their lives as a result of the crash.

The 19-year-old who was driving the Cadillac sedan at the time of the accident remains in critical condition at Saint Barnabas Medical Center.

While it is confirmed that speed was not a factor in the crash, the reason for the accident has not been disclosed.
