PRUNEDALE, Calif. (AP) — 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 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.
