Authorities have confirmed a crash in Arizona involving a pickup truck and a group of bicyclists left at least two people dead and 11 others injured.

Emergency responders pronounced a woman dead at the scene, and the second fatality occurred later at the hospital after the Goodyear Police Department said the pickup was driving along Cotton Lane near Phoenix Saturday morning when it struck a “large group of adult bicyclists.”

Both of the deceased were bicyclists. 

“We are sad to update that this is a fatal crash with two confirmed deceased cyclists. One adult female and one adult male. This crash involved a single vehicle (pick-up truck). The adult male driver remained on scene,” police said.
