BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Two people are dead and two others are in a local hospital with minor injuries after a two-car collision southeast of Delano, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The CHP says the accident occurred at 10:55 a.m. on Saturday.
According to the CHP, 28-year-old Emmanuel Alfaro from McFarland was driving a 2006 Honda Accord eastbound on Pond Road with Veronica Alfaro, 27, from Bakersfield in the passenger seat. The CHP says they were driving "at an unknown speed" when they arrived at the intersection with Driver Road.
At the same time, 24-year-old Fernando Felix of Delano was driving a 2013 Ford/2X Flatbed southbound on Driver Road, also at an unknown speed, according to the CHP, when he was approaching the intersection with Pond Road.
The CHP says that as both drivers approached the intersection, Alfaro failed to stop the 2006 Honda Accord at the stop sign and crossed the intersection. Felix then drove through the intersection, which did not have a stop sign, when he struck Alfaro's car.
Due to the impact, the CHP says, both vehicles overturned and both Emmanuel and Veronica Alfaro were ejected from the 2006 Honda Accord. The CHP said they died at the scene as a result of their injuries.
Felix and his passenger, 23-year-old Billy Crumm, also from Delano, were taken to Delano Regional Hospital with minor injuries.
The CHP says that at this time, drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a factor in this crash.
