A man is dead after crashing his SUV into a light pole in South San Jose early Sunday morning.
The accident happened around 2:00 a.m at Blossom Hill and Winfield roads, right by Oakridge Mall. The SUV was split in half.
Police said the man was speeding. Two female passengers were taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
Crews spent the day at the busy intersection, working on the traffic signals which have been out all day because of the accident.
They said it will take a while to get the lights back on because of the extensive rewiring needed. The accident fried all the wiring inside the poles.
The intersection had to be treated as a four-way stop.
