Crash The California Highway Patrol has closed off both directions of Turnbull Canyon Road in Hacienda Heights after two people were killed in a wreck.

The accident occurred shortly before 9 a.m. near Skyline Drive, where at least one vehicle went off the side of the canyon road, according to CHP Officer Francisco Villalobos. "We don't know if it's a solo-vehicle accident or if another vehicle was involved," he said.

Coroner investigators are en route to the scene, as is a tow truck with a 100-foot-long cable, Villalobos said.
