One person was killed and another person injured in a collision involving two motorcycles and an SUV early Saturday afternoon, Maricopa County Sheriff's spokesman Joaquin Enriquez said.

The crash happened at Apache Trail and S. Mountain Road in East Mesa.

MCSO patrol deputies arrived on scene and found two motorcycles had collided with a van that was trying to cross a road.

One male victim was airlifted to Scottsdale Osborn hospital. Another male victim was taken by ground ambulance to Chandler Regional.

Excessive speed does not appear to be an issue.  

MCSO also says there appears to be no impairment involved in this accident.
