NAPA, Calif. – The California Highway Patrol says four college students are dead after their car skidded into oncoming traffic on a two-lane Napa Valley highway.
The CHP has not identified the four men, whose ages ranged from 19 to 22, but said all four attended Pacific Union College in Angwin.
Officials say the four men were driving fast in a Honda Civic on Deer Park Road at about 11:45 p.m. when the car skidded into opposing traffic. The Honda was hit by a Toyota pickup truck and another vehicle.
The driver of the truck, 28-year-old Sandalo Martinez, was seriously injured and was taken to the hospital. The third driver, 20-tyear-old Carlos Rio Ortiz, sustained minor injuries.
The Napa Valley coroner is investigating and attempting to notify the families of the four victims.
