SYLMAR (CNS) - Two occupants of a pickup truck were killed and another two suffered minor injuries when the vehicle overturned several times in Sylmar, police said.

The pickup was travelling south in the 12700 block of Harding Street when the driver lost control around 7:35 p.m. Tuesday, June 24,Modrell said.

Killed in the crash were Rodrigo Albarado, 21, of San Fernando, the driver, and Hakim Brooks, 19, of Sylmar, a passenger, said coroner's Chief Ed Winter. The injured were two males, aged 16 and 21, whose names were not released.
