A suspected DUI driver is jailed Friday after police said he crashed into a pickup truck and killed two road construction workers in Orange.

Officers were called to the scene at East Santiago Canyon Road east of Jamboree Road about 8:50 p.m. Thursday, according to Sgt. Kevin Plog of the Orange Police Department.

Investigators determined a man driving a car had slammed into a pickup that was parked in the bike lane and two men who were working nearby were struck and died at the scene, Plog said.

Police arrested the driver, Hipolito Paez-Vazquez, 30, on suspicion of DUI and vehicular manslaughter, said Plog.
