Two men were killed Saturday when a pick-up truck crashed into three motorcycles in north suburban Fox Lake, officials said.

The pick-up truck driver and one of the motorcyclists were killed. Five others were injured.

The three motorcycles were traveling in a group of five. The other two motorcyclists were able to get out of the way.
The crash occurred at about 3 p.m. near State Park and Grass Lake roads, near Route 12.

The five motorcycles were traveling northbound when the southbound-traveling truck barreled into three of the motorcycles, investigators said.

"It appears that the truck crossed into the other lanes of traffic," said Fox Lake Police Chief Russell Laine.

The pick-up truck burst into flames. One of the motorcyclists had his leg amputated in the crash. He was airlifted to a nearby hospital, but died.
