An out of control car hit two pedestrians and slammed into a power pole, killing the driver Thursday night on Winding Way.

The CHP says the two female pedestrians are believed to be in their mid-20s. They suffered broken bones and were taken to Mercy San Juan Hospital.

The driver was taken by ambulance to Mercy but later succombed to his injuries.

The Saturn he was traveling in had just turned onto Winding Way when, eyewitnesses said, the car began swerving and slammed into a power pole in front of an apartment complex.

The CHP says excessive speed appeared to be a factor in the accident.
