PIRU, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a rider was killed and another seriously injured in a crash at a Ventura County motocross track.

The Ventura County Star (http://bit.ly/1nI7542 ) says initial reports called it a head-on collision between two motorcyclists at the track in Piru.

One man was taken to a hospital by helicopter. Capt. Mike Lindbery of the Ventura County Fire Department says a second rider, a man in his early 20s, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Sheriff’s Office and the California Highway Patrol responded to investigate.

It was one of two crashes reported at the track Sunday. Lindbery says a short time later a rider was hospitalized with minor injuries.
