MENDOTA, Calif. (AP) — A Fresno man has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and gross vehicular manslaughter in connection with a crash on a Central Valley road that killed four people, including two children.

The Fresno Bee reports that 43-year-old Rien Ban was booked into Fresno County Jail after Sunday afternoon's crash near Mendota.

The California Highway Patrol says Ban tried to pass a slower vehicle in his SUV and smashed into a Kia. A woman and two boys riding in the Kia died.

The Fresno County Coroner's Office identified them as 25-year-old Belkys Rodriguez Quesada, 7-year-old Danny Enriquez Rodriguez and 10-year-old Lisandro Enriquez Rodriguez. They are believed to be from the same family.

A passenger in the SUV, 37-year-old Sinoeun Uong, of Sacramento, also died. The driver of the Kia and a passenger in the SUV suffered moderate injuries.
