HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) -- Suffolk County Police are investigating two deaths that occurred during the snowstorm.

In the Elwood section of Huntington on Chester Court, authorities say three 17 year olds were taking turns using a tube to go down the hill when tragedy occurred Monday night.

"When one of the teens, Sean Urda, got on the tube, apparently lost control and struck a light pole at approximately 10 p.m.," Suffolk County Police Spokesperson Dawn Schob told WCBS 880's Sophia Hall.
