2 killed, teen critically injured in high-speed crash in Anaheim
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, Lt. Tim Schmidt of the Anaheim Police Department told KTLA-TV.
The driver and a passenger were ejected from the vehicle in the violent crash, which was reported about 10:40 p.m. Sunday near the intersections 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.
Their names 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.
