A weekend head-on crash south of Madera sent three victims to the hospital. The California Highway Patrol said the accident occurred on Avenue 7 near the intersection of Road 25.

ABC30-TV confirmed the devastating crash occurred around 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 19, 2023.

Investigators found that the driver of a Nissan car going westbound suddenly ran off the road. In an effort to get back on the road, the driver ran head-on into an eastbound Toyota Camry.

Crews on the scene said that the impact left a female passenger in the Nissan trapped inside. She had to be extricated. In all, two people in the Nissan and one person in the Toyota were rushed to a local hospital. They were thought to have major injuries, but no update on their conditions has been provided.

The California Highway Patrol does not suspect drug or alcohol use in the accident. They continue to examine the circumstances surrounding what happened.
