A 16-year-old teenager is dead and two other teenagers are seriously injured after a crash in Scarborough just before 1:30 a.m. Friday.

Toronto police said a 14-year-old boy, who was the passenger in the vehicle, is in life-threatening condition. The third boy, a 16-year-old who was in the back seat, has serious injuries after the car they were in slammed into a light pole near Brimley Road and McNicoll Avenue.

Police said the driver suffered critical injuries and died in hospital.

A white Mercedes Benz lost control and hopped the curb crashing into a light pole that ended up toppling onto the vehicle, said police. Emergency services had to extricate the driver.

Family of the 16-year-old boy from Whitby who died arrived at the crash scene Friday morning. A man, who said he is the victim's uncle, said in tears "he was too young... all our family is broken."

The uncle said he believes his nephew took his mother's car out at around midnight. The family also said the three boys in the car were all friends.

Investigators said speed and weather were likely factors in this crash.

Brimley Road is closed from McNicoll Avenue to Wenlock Gate for the collision reconstruction investigation.
