Two people were killed in a single-vehicle crash in Fullerton, in which speed is believed to be a factor.
The crash was reported on Rosecrans Avenue, just west of Euclid Street, according to Sgt. Jon Radus of the Fullerton Police Department.
The pair was killed Tuesday when the 2006 black Lexus they were traveling in crashed into a tree, Radus said. There were no other injuries reported.
The genders and ages of the victims were not immediately available.
“Preliminary investigation shows that the Lexus was traveling eastbound on Rosecrans (Avenue) at Camino Loma when the vehicle lost control and crashed head on into a tree,” Radus said.
“Speed may be a factor that contributed to the collision as an eye witness reported seeing the vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed.”
The intersection was closed for the investigation and motorists were advised to take alternate routes.
