CALIFORNIA (PIX11)– Two people are dead after a race-car veered off the track and plowed into the pit.

A 17-year-old driver was doing warm-up laps at a California raceway Saturday evening when he lost control.

The car ran into a 14-year-old boy and a 68-year-old man, killing them both.

They believe it was a mechanical error as the car never slowed down.

The driver was not injured. The crash is being investigated.
