SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say two children were among four people killed when a car collided with a minivan on a rural Northern California highway.
California Highway Patrol spokesman Officer John Frizzell says the wreck occurred when a Toyota Prius crossed the center line on Highway 50 near Placerville on Saturday night and struck a Toyota Sienna minivan "broadside."
The crash also left five people injured.
Frizzell says three people in the Prius were killed. They were identified as 38-year-old Sheng Kun Su, who was driving; 39-year-old Shu Zhen Zhao; and 8-year-old Shawn Su, all from Oakland. Another child in the car was hospitalized.
He says that of the five people in the minivan, a 4-year-old girl from Pollock Pines was killed. Nora Elizabeth Temple died after being taken to a hospital.
