Posted on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 4:57pm

Two people are dead, after a car went out of control off a road in Ventura County, and smashed into some construction equipment in what the CHP is calling a DUI crash.

It happened just before 11:30 last night, on Potrero Road in the Newbury Park area.

The CHP says a car driven by Colin Powell of Newbury Park drifted off the road on a curve, and smashed into some parked construction equipment.

A man, and a woman who were passengers in the vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene.

Powell, and a third passenger escaped with minor injuries.

The 23 year old Newbury Park man was arrested on a felony DUI charge, and is expected to face additional charges after the Ventura County District Attorney’s office reviews the case.
