JOLIETTE, Que. - Two teens are dead and two are in critical condition after a 15-year-old driver lost control of a vehicle that crashed north of Montreal early Monday morning.

Quebec provincial police said five teenage boys were in a car, owned by one of their parents, which crashed into a tree in Joliette, Que. at about 2 a.m.

Two passengers aged 14 and 17 died, while a 13-year-old and a 16-year-old were taken to hospital, where they remained in critical condition Monday afternoon.

Police say speed may have been a factor in the crash.

The underage driver suffered only minor injuries.

After meeting with investigators, he was released on a promise to appear in court.

He is due in court on Nov. 22 and could be charged with dangerous driving causing death and criminal negligence causing death.
