At least two people died after a speeding vehicle collided with a minivan carrying four people on Northwest 26th Street, Wednesday.
Just after 12:00 a.m., a minivan was seen backing out of a driveway near the cross street of West Popular Street and NW 26th Street. A few moments later, a pickup truck that was traveling at an unsafe speed struck the minivan. The pickup truck then struck a utility pole before coming to rest. The minivan caught fire after the impact.
The driver of the minivan died at the scene. A female passenger was ejected from the vehicle and was seriously injured. Two more occupants, a boy and a girl, sustained second-degree burns and were transported to University Hospital for treatment. Their identifications were withheld pending notification of their immediate family.
No information was provided about the driver of the speeding truck.
