A New York couple was killed yesterday when a car crashed into their vehicle after they pulled onto the shoulder of the Capital Beltway to take a travel break, said state police in Prince George's County.

John and Carole Hall, both 47, of North Eastport, N.Y., were inside their 1995 Mazda Protege when it was hit from behind by a 1991 Pontiac Grand Prix about 8: 30 a.m. on the outer loop of Interstate 495, north of Route 210 in Oxon Hill, police said.

The couple's teen-age daughter and Jason Jones, 19, of Fort Washington, the driver of the Pontiac, were injured and were in stable condition last night at Prince George's Hospital Center in Cheverly, a hospital spokeswoman said.

The daughter was not identified by police because she is a minor. The couple's son, also a minor, was outside the car when the accident occurred and was not injured.

The accident is being investigated, police said.
