FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say two people are dead following two separate pre-dawn crashes on northbound State Route 57 in Orange County, and one of the deaths is being investigated as a possible suicide.

Brea police are investigating whether a woman fatally struck by several vehicles may have jumped from a freeway overpass around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday.

KABC-TV reports that about 30 minutes later, a driver was killed on the same freeway when his pickup plowed into the back of big rig stopped because of the first incident.

Commuter traffic was backed up for several miles as the scenes were cleared.
