SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Three teenage girls trick-or-treating in costume were hit by a vehicle and killed while walking at a Southern California intersection.

Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna (buhr-TAHN-yuh) says the girls were hit while in a crosswalk near an elementary school shortly before 7 p.m. Friday.

Bertagna says the suspects fled. He says police had no immediate description of the vehicle or suspect, but police were investigating several witnesses.

Orange County fire Capt. Steve Concialdi says the girls ranged in ages from 13 to 15. He says two of them were declared dead immediately and a third died as paramedics prepared to take her to a hospital.

The girls' identities and exact ages were not immediately clear, and police were trying to identify and find their parents.
