MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Two motorcyclists were killed and another was injured in separate collisions in the East Valley on Saturday.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office says the first incident took place around 2 p.m. when two motorcycles collided with a van that was trying to cross Main Street in east Mesa.

One of the motorcyclists was transported to a hospital, where he died. The other suffered serious head injuries and lacerations.

Police don’t believe that impairment was a factor in the crash.

The second incident took place on Saturday evening when a man identified as Steven Slager was riding a motorcycle on Power and Guadalupe roads in Gilbert.

Police say the driver of a car made a left turn in front of Slager, who was wearing a helmet.

MCSO says the driver in that crash was not impaired.
