October 1, 2011 |  8:11 am

Anaheim police were investigating the early morning deaths of two pedestrians struck by a Chevrolet Astro van Saturday.

The 4:10 a.m. incident took place on the 1600 block of South Harbor Boulevard, said Anaheim Police Sgt. Bob Dunn.

The pedestrians –- a man and a woman –- were both pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the van was transported to a hospital for treatment for injuries, Dunn said. His condition was unknown.

“We’re currently investigating the possibility of alcohol” being involved in the accident, he said.

Several others were believed to have been in the van at the time of the accident and ran off before police arrived, Dunn said.

While the investigation is underway, a two-block stretch of South Harbor Boulevard, between Manchester Avenue and Disney Way, has been closed in both directions, he  said.
