The crash, involving a  motorcycle, a pickup truck and a small van, took place around 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 24 in the area of Goshen Road and University Drive, said the Torrington Police Department.

An initial on-scene investigation indicated the motorcycle was traveling east on Goshen Road and crossed the center double yellow line in the area of University Drive, police said.

The pickup truck, traveling west on Goshen Road, took evasive action but the motorcycle still struck the rear quarter panel of the truck. The motorcycle then lost control and struck a small van that was also traveling west on Goshen Road head-on, police added.

At that time, the motorcycle occupants were ejected, with both pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the pickup truck and his passenger were not injured. The operator of the van was also not injured. 

Both drivers are cooperating with police at this time and there is no suspicion of driver impairment, police said.

 Both deceased parties have been transported to the Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy. 

The victims’ identities will be released later today after all family members have been notified.
