OTAY MESA (CNS) - A motorist died Thursday after suffering an apparent heart attack on the grounds of an auto-auction yard near the U.S.-Mexico border and getting into a crash that left two pedestrians injured.

The 54-year-old driver lost control of his Jeep Cherokee at the business in the 7200 block of Otay Mesa Road shortly before 9:30 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

The vehicle struck a metal barricade, pushing it into a married couple who were walking or standing alongside it.

Medics took the stricken motorist to Sharp Memorial Hospital Chula Vista, where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival, Cal Fire Battalion

Chief Nick Schuler said. The deceased man's name was withheld pending notification of his family.

The couple was transported to Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego for treatment of minor to moderately serious injuries.

Emergency crews told investigators the driver of the Jeep appeared to have had a heart attack behind the wheel, Schuler said.
