Officials say the accidents happened in the early afternoon, when a 58-year-old man lost control of his 1993 Mercedes-Benz sedan in the 6500 block of La Jolla Scenic Drive. The man careened into a newer model Mercedes, then continued on and hit a light post.A passenger in the older car, a man in his 70s, died at the scene. Medics took the two drivers to hospitals for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
