Two people were killed and at least three others injured when a motorcycle and a pickup truck collided with another vehicle early Sunday morning at an intersection in Fullerton, authorities said.
The collision happened around 9:20 a.m. at Magnolia Road and Flower Avenue, Fullerton police said.
Police said an unidentified 70-year-old woman was hit by one of the vehicles and died on the spot. The motorcyclist, an unidentified 35-year-old man, was transported to a local hospital, where he died of his injuries.
Authorities said one of the vehicles also crashed into a telephone pole and the side of a house, causing a gas leak that prompted the temporary evacuation of surrounding homes.
Authorities say the motorcyclist and one person in the Audi sedan were driving north on Magnolia Road at high speed when they collided with the minivan trying to turn into Flower Avenue. The motorcyclist was thrown out, while the Audi, after hitting the front of the pickup truck, swerved across the street and hit a woman on the sidewalk and a man on a bicycle.
Police said the pickup truck driver and a passenger, as well as the cyclist, suffered minor to minor injuries.
Investigators do not believe alcohol or drugs were a factor in the collision.
