EL PASO, Texas -

Two El Pasoans were killed Wednesday morning in a motorcycle wreck on I-10 east between Transmountain and Artcraft.

The incident, which happened at about 2:53 a.m. completely shut down I-10 east in that area.

The victims, a man and a woman who have yet to be identified, were both wearing helmets. While the wreck is still under investigation, police have indicated that speed was a contributing factor. A clean up crew at the scene told us at around 6 a.m. that clean up could take about three hours.
