No crime was apparently involved in the deaths of a man and a woman riding a motorcycle when the two were killed in a car crash in the Florence area of Los Angeles, police said Monday.

Paramedics used CPR in a desperate but unsuccessful effort to save the lives of the victims.

Details were still sketchy, but apparently no illegal substances were involved in the crash and the driver of the car remained at the scene. It wasn’t know if anyone in that car was injured.

The fatally injured bike rider was identified as Alberto Velasquez, 28, of Los Angeles, according to the coroner’s office.

The name of the woman, about 30-35 years old, was withheld pending notification of her relatives.

The crash occurred at 2132 W. Florence Ave. just before 6 p.m. Sunday, according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart.

The circumstances of the crash were under investigation, but there was no indication that a crime was involved, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
