Two people were killed Wednesday night in Arcadia when they were struck by a van while walking with a 6-year-old girl.

A 32-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman from Sarasota were walking their tricycles south on SE Airport Road, near SE Durrance Street at about 7:45 p.m., with the child riding in a wagon.

The van, driven by a 25-year-old Arcadia woman, hit the adults and they died at the scene. The child was unharmed.

Troopers noted that the tricycles did not have lighting or reflective equipment.

An investigation is ongoing.
