A Frenchman killed two men fishing in Lake Zurich on Sunday morning when he lost control of his car, smashed into the anglers and plunged into the lake, police said.

The driver, a 42-year-old Swiss resident, drove over the pavement and down stairs leading to the waterside where the two men, a 34-year-old Serb and a Swiss man in his sixties, were fishing.

The Serb was killed instantly and the Swiss died after being taken to hospital, police said in a statement.

The driver escaped with minor injuries. Police are investigating what caused him to lose control of the car, including tests for alcohol or drugs in his blood.
