Three people were killed in a hit-and-run crash Tuesday morning in Anaheim.

Officers responded about 2:50 a.m. to the intersection of Brookhurst Street and Orange Avenue, where they found a white Mercedes-Benz abandoned and a black Kia with three people inside, all of whom were pronounced dead at the scene, according to Sgt. Shane Carringer of the Anaheim Police Department.

The driver of the Mercedes, believed to be a woman, fled the scene along with possibly two other passengers. All may have sustained injuries, Carringer said.

A man who said he witnessed the crash told ABC7 two people picked up the woman driving the Mercedes and put her in another vehicle and drove off. The driver and another woman were found at a hospital, police said about 5 a.m.

A news photographer at the scene said the Mercedes caught fire after the crash and the three victims in the Kia Soul were all men.

Brookhurst Street was closed between Orange Avenue and Broadway while an investigation was conducted into the circumstances of the crash. The names of the victims were not disclosed.
