An 87-year-old man and an 89-year-old passenger were attempting to leave a BJ’s lot on 20th Avenue in a 1989 Mercury, when the driver lost control, hit a parked van and struck a light pole, according to the NYPD.

Responding authorities declared them both dead at the scene.

The NYPD’s investigation into the crash was ongoing and the seniors had not been identified as of Tuesday morning, pending family notification.
