WASCO, Calif. (AP) - A head-on crash has killed five people and injured one on a central California highway.

California Highway Patrol Officer Robert Rodriguez tells Bakersfield TV station KGET that three adults and two juveniles died Sunday night on State Route 43 in Wasco, north of Bakersfield.

A surviving teenage boy with major injuries was flown to a hospital.

A woman driving a pickup truck south veered northbound lanes and collided with a sedan.

The pickup driver is among the dead. Rodriguez says she is suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol.
