Two people were killed and three others were injured in a two-vehicle crash in San Diego’s Midway area, authorities said Sunday.

The crash was reported at 9:06 p.m. Saturday on Rosecrans Street at Sports Arena Boulevard, said San Diego Police Officer Robert Heims.

A 31-year-old man speeding in a westbound 1999 Toyota Tacoma truck in the 2900 block of Sports Arena Boulevard hit a median and went airborne.

The truck landed on top of a northbound 2015 Toyota Sienna van, in the 3800 block of Rosecrans Street, which had four occupants.

A man and a woman inside the van died at the scene. Paramedics rushed the two other people inside the van to a hospital, where their conditions were unknown.

The 31-year-old driver of the pickup, who suffered from broken bones and other injuries, was transported to an area hospital.

Authorities at the scene said drunk driving may have been a factor in the deadly collision.

San Diego police urged anyone with any information regarding the crash to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
