A man is dead after an SUV crashed into a Cape Coral pool. 

Police say it happened at a home in a neighborhood near Kismet Parkway and Chiquita Boulevard North. 

Officers say the Toyota RAV4 was speeding through nearby fields when it collided with a boat - sending into the air. 

The car then collided with the roof of a house, and rolled onto an adjacent screened-in lanai, before landing in a swimming pool. 

18-year-old Gavin Clutts, 18-year-old Ryan Whicker, and a minor all suffered life-threatening injuries. 

20-year-old Michael Velez died from his injuries. 

Investigators say drugs and alcohol were not factors in the crash.
