Authorities in Northern California say a woman suspected of driving under the influence veered onto the opposite side of the road and crashed head-on against another car, killing three people.
California Highway Patrol Officer Jessica Madueno tells KSBW-TV the 27-year-old woman was driving Friday on a road near the Mark Ryan Estates in Prunedale, just eight miles north of Salinas, when she crashed against a car carrying four people. The driver of that car survived and was taken to a hospital with major injures.
Madueno says the 27-year-old woman was also taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
She says investigators believe the woman may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol. She has not been identified.
