The Florida Highway Patrol says a driver hit four people walking along a southwest Florida road, killing two of them.

Fifty-four-year-old Gregory Tocci also died after his car struck a concrete power pole Monday night.

Two pedestrians, 62-year-old William R. Fadely and 73-year-old James Amos, were taken to the hospital. Troopers say Amos was in serious condition and Fadely was in critical condition. Two others - 60-year-old Allen Wilson and 62-year-old Holly S. Fadely - died.

Investigators say Tocci's car veered onto the shoulder of the road as it approached the pedestrians.

No further details were immediately available.
