LUFKIN, Texas (AP) - East Texas authorities say two people have died and two others have been injured after a motorcycle slammed into the back of an SUV.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says 49-year-old Charles Kilgore and 51-year-old Lisa Ruskin were killed Thursday near Lufkin when their motorcycle hit the SUV on a highway. Troopers say Kilgore died at the scene and Ruskin died at an area hospital.

The 23-year-old driver of the SUV and her 3-year-old son were hospitalized with unspecified injuries and released.

Troopers say the motorcycle was weaving in and out of oncoming traffic before the crash. The SUV driver had slowed down to look at puppies being sold on the side of the road.

It’s unclear how fast the motorcycle was traveling before the wreck.
