FRESNO, Calif. (AP — Authorities say five people were killed in a head-on crash in central California, and investigators suspect alcohol was a factor.
The California Highway Patrol says the two-car collision happened around 4:30 a.m. Saturday in eastern Fresno County. Investigators believe a Hyundai Accent crossed a double-yellow line into the opposite lane, colliding head-on with a Honda Accord. All four people in the Hyundai died at the scene near Table Mountain Casino northeast of downtown Fresno. A passenger in the Honda was also killed.
Rescue crews cut the roof from the Accord to free the driver and another passenger, who were hospitalized with major injuries.
