NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Police have released the names of two pedestrians killed in Connecticut last week when they were pinned to a building by a car.

New Haven police on Tuesday identified the victims of the Friday night crash as 42-year-old Carlos Kercado and 31-year-old Emmanuel Torres, who both lived in the city.

Police say the sedan plowed into Justin's Deli Market in the city's Fair Haven section around 11 p.m. Friday, pinning the pedestrians.

The driver had to be extricated from the vehicle and was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. A passenger left the scene and later showed up at the hospital with minor injuries. Their names haven't been released. The investigation is ongoing.
