SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say nine people were injured when a pickup truck struck a minivan head-on on California’s Mendocino Coast.

The Press-Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/2doYa8R ) that California Highway Patrol suspects the truck driver, a 71-year-old Texas resident, was intoxicated when he drifted across a double yellow line on Highway 1 on Saturday night.

CHP says the truck driver and his passenger were flown to separate hospitals with major injuries.

Troopers say the minivan driver, 66-year-old Mary Kay Viglione of Fair Oaks, and her six female passengers all suffered minor injuries and were taken to the hospital by ambulance.

The passengers were Helen Mitchell of Hidden Valley Lake, Pamela Miller of Sacramento, Christine Lennon of El Dorado Hills, Ruth Halbrook of Carmichael, Sheryl Hurst-Carpenter of Rocklin and Agnes Hobbs of Sacramento.
