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 three people injured. Earlier reports had put the injury toll at five.
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.
