2 die, 1 critically hurt in Anaheim crash

Two people were killed and a teenager was critically injured in a high-speed crash in Anaheim, officials said.

One vehicle appeared to have crashed into two parked cars Sunday night, flipping over and into a brick wall and landing in the backyard of a home, Anaheim Police Lt. Tim Schmidt said.

The driver and a passenger were ejected from the vehicle in the crash, which was reported about 10:40 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of East and South streets, Schmidt said.

A woman in the front passenger seat was pronounced dead at the scene and a man was taken to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, according to Orange County coroner officials.

The names of the dead have not been released, coroner officials said.

The teenager remained in critical condition.

A dog inside the vehicle also was killed.

"Based on the physical evidence here and the location of where the vehicle ended up, speed is an obvious factor," Schmidt said.
