An 87 year-old man and his 89-year-old passenger were killed Monday night in a car crash in the parking lot of the College Point BJ’s Wholesale Club, police said.

The driver was trying to leave the parking lot of the store at 137-05 20th Ave. around 9:15 p.m. when he lost control of his 1989 Mercury, striking an unoccupied parked minivan and then a light pole, authorities said.

The man and his female passenger, who both have yet to be identified by police, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police were investigating.
