The four were driving from London to visit Rabbi Eliezer Berland, rosh yeshiva of the Shuvu Bonim in Jerusalem, who is currently living in Amsterdam after fleeing Israel.
Israeli web sites have identified the two fatalities as 15 year old Nossin Drok from Bnei Brak, and 20 year old Shmuel Meir Langleben from Jerusalem.
According to Dutch news site Dichtbij, authorities have yet to determine why the vehicle hit a light pole before crashing into a tree near Broek in Waterland on the N247 roadway, approximately 7 miles outside of Amsterdam.
Emergency rescuers had to cut open the vehicle to free the two injured occupants of the vehicle, who were transported to the VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam.
