Nathan and Raizy Glauber, both 21, were riding in a livery cab in Brooklyn. Another car, a BMW, crashed into the cab at an intersection, slamming into its side, at about 12:10 a.m. Sunday.
The two occupants of the BMW fled the scene on foot and are being sought by police.
The driver of the cab, a Toyota Corolla, was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition, police say.
The Glaubers were soon pronounced dead at two different hospitals, said Sgt. Tom Antonetti, a police spokesman. Police initially identified the name as Gluber, but revised that later in the day.
