ANSONIA, Ohio (AP) - Two people on a motorcycle were killed in a crash with a pickup truck over the weekend in Ohio, authorities said.

The Darke County sheriff’s office said deputies as well as Union City and Ansonia fire and rescue personnel were called to a Route 47 intersection in Jackson Township just after 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

The preliminary investigation indicates that the eastbound pickup turned north onto a road in the path of the westbound motorcycle, the sheriffs office said.

Douglas Shaneyfelt, 55, and Hope Shaneyfelt, 48, both of Union City, Indiana, were pronounced dead at the scene, the sheriff’s office said. Authorities said neither was wearing a helmet. The pickup driver was treated at the scene.

A county accident reconstruction team and the coroner’s office were called to the scene to investigate further.
