Two men in their 20s were in critical condition following a crash on Rainier Avenue South at Andover Street at 8:20 this morning.

The two men were driving in a Ford Mustang southbound on Rainier when the driver lost control and hit a telephone pole before slamming into a parked car. A resident of one of the nearby buildings was standing near the parked car and was also transported to the hospital with minor injuries, said Seattle Fire Department spokeswoman Sue Stangl.

The Mustang was sheared almost in half by the force of the crash, Stangl said. The two men appeared to have serious, but not life-threatening, injuries, she said.
