COLUSA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say four people were killed and one person injured when a car went off the side of a Colusa County highway, down an embankment and overturned in a canal.
The California Highway Patrol said the victims were from Yuba City. A 65-year-old woman who survived Saturday's crash off Highway 20, south of the city of Colusa, was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
Sacramento River Fire Protection District Chief Jeff Winters told the Sacramento Bee (http://bit.ly/1l4z2F3) the car was about three-quarters submerged in the water.
The cause of the crash was under investigation.
