A car being driven by 39-year-old Nikolus Hildreth left Northdale Boulevard and struck a large cement power pole before catching fire. Hildreth died at the scene along with his passenger, 38-year-old Chanda Nordstrom. Multiple witnesses say the vehicle was traveling at what authorities are calling "extreme speeds" for a suburban neighborhood.
