A man and a woman were killed after being hit by a van just outside of Disneyland early this morning.Before police had a chance to show up, they believe that several passengers in the van fled, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The pedestrians were hit just after 4 a.m. in the 1600 block of South Harbor Boulevard, and they died at the scene. The driver was transported to the hospital with injuries.

Authorities are investigating what happened, including the possibility that alcohol was involved. They are shutting down a two-block stretch of South Harbor Boulevard between Manchester Avenue and Disney Way in both directions during the investigation.
