Two people were killed early this morning after a driver lost control of his car and crashed into a wooden utility pole, according to a statement released by the LAPD. The accident occurred near the intersection of Topanga Canyon Marnilla Street in Chatsworth at around 3:00 a.m. According to the statement, the driver of the 2006 Scion sedan was speeding when he lost control and hit the pole at a bend in the road.
