Authorities say two people riding dirt bikes were killed in a late-night crash on Saturday near Casa Grande.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety says a black sedan crashed into two dirt bikes while driving westbound on State Route 84 west of Casa Grande.

Both riders were pronounced dead at the scene, troopers said. The two people inside the sedan at the time of the crash were airlifted to the hospital. Officials did not have further details about their conditions as of midday Sunday.

The area was closed for several hours while authorities responded to the crash. SR-84 reopened to traffic just before 4:30 a.m. Sunday, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.
