(New York Daily):  Four Queens teenagers were killed Monday when their car — driven by a 17-year-old with only a learner’s permit — sped off a treacherous stretch of a Long Island highway and wrapped itself around a tree.

Joseph Beer lost control of the 2012 Subaru Impreza that friends said his parents just bought for him after he “failed to negotiate a curve,” State Police officials said.

The car, which Beer had been given for graduating early from Richmond Hill High School, split in two — and tossed the teens out like rag dolls.

Peter Anthony, Chris Khan, Neil Rajaba and Darian Ramnarine — all of them 18, three of them popular graduates of Richmond Hill High School — were killed instantly and pronounced dead at the scene.

Beer survived and was being treated at a Long Island hospital.

“He’s going to be okay,” said a neighbor. “He knows that his friends died.”

Khan’s body was identified by his extended family.

“About 20 of us went to identify the body,” his grieving dad, Somdat Bhawan, 41. “We are a large family. We stick together in moments like this.”
