3 dead in fatal car accident in California

Three people have tragically lost their lives following a wrong-way crash near Prunedale, according to local sources.

So far, evidence is still being gathered in conjunction with the Monterey County Coroner's Office.

According to the accident report, a 25-year-old man was driving a sports car at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour around 7:15 p.m. westbound on Burbank Boulevard when the accident occurred. The man reportedly crashed his vehicle into an SUV, causing its driver minor injuries.

As with many suspected drunk driving accidents, this one is still under investigation. 

According to the reports, it appears around 2 a.m. the morning of May 11, the minivan carrying the 17-year-old was traveling southbound on Highway 17 when the accident occurred. A 28-year-old San Jose resident was reportedly driving north in the southbound lanes and was seen by a CHP trooper who was unable to catch her in time to prevent the accident.
