The motorcycle was eastbound on Fort Union Boulevard when the blue Toyota van made a left turn in front of it. The motorcycle was unable to stop in time to avoid the collision.

Neither of the victims was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, UHP said.

The accident was under investigation, but speed was not believed a factor. Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said charges would be screened at the conclusion of the investigation, expected to take a couple weeks.

The names of the victims — the male was 30 years old, the female 29 — have not been released.

The woman was in very critical condition. The man was critical but stable, Hoyal said on Friday.
