Investigators said it happened at 6:50 p.m. when the pedestrians attempted to cross Franklin Boulevard against the light.

The truck was headed westbound and had the green light, police said.

For a time, the westbound lanes of the road were closed between Interstate 5 and Walnut Street.

Melinda McLaughlin said pedestrians and drivers need to be extra cautious this time of year because of the shorter days and busy roads.

"This time of year there's a lot of traffic, a lot of people trying to get places quickly and also with it being really dark outside," McLaughlin said. "It's the darkest time of the year and people just need to be aware of other people who might be around them."
