Two men are in hospital following an early morning car accident near the intersection of Sheppard Avenue West and Keele Street in Toronto.

Police at 32 Division say a 2001 Honda Civic was westbound on Sheppard at 2:49 a.m. Wednesday when the driver lost control, crossed the eastbound lanes, mounted the south-side curb and struck a hydro pole.

The passenger-side door was torn off and both occupants were ejected from the car.

The car continued down an embankment and stopped after striking a tree. No other vehicles were involved in the accident.

A 20-year-old man was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries. A 21-year-old man, who was in the car with him, was hospitalized with serious injuries. Their identities have not been released.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-1900 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
