An early-morning auto accident in Staten Island has left three children - two of them toddlers - as orphans, police officials said.

The family was traveling west on the Staten Island Expressway in a dark red minivan at about 4:12 a.m. yesterday when the driver lost control, sending the van careening into a tree and a concrete wall. The front of the vehicle immediately erupted in flames, passersby told police.

At about the same time, two highway patrol officers, Robert Albano, 38, and Kevin Mullane, 37, were parked on the side of the road about a mile ahead, watching for speeders. Within minutes of the accident, a driver pulled up behind them and told them there had been an accident.
