4 dead, 4 injured in Northern California crash

Nov 13, 2013, 6:35 PM

YUBA CITY, Calif. (AP) – A crash at a Northern California highway intersection left four men dead and four people injured, authorities said.

A 1997 Toyota Camry carrying the four men was approaching Highway 99 south of Yuba City around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday when it entered the intersection and was broadsided by a Mercedes sedan heading south on the highway, the California Highway Patrol said.

The Camry had a stop sign, but it was unclear whether it stopped before the crash, Sgt. Michael McCarthy said. The CHP will look at the possibility the driver was under the influence and will inspect the vehicles as part of its investigation, McCarthy said.

One of the passengers in the Camry was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the car. The Camry went into a clockwise spin before the trunk collided with a light pole, the CHP said.

All three passengers and the driver died at the scene.

Their names were withheld pending notification of family, but the CHP said the four were from Yuba City and between the ages of 40 and 53.

The Mercedes driver, identified as 23-year-old Sonny Granados, suffered major injuries. Three passengers in the Mercedes had minor injuries.
