Two dead after Merced Co crash

Sunday, January 15, 2012

A head-on crash in Merced County has left two people dead.

It happened around seven last night on Highway 140 near Owens Creek Road.

That's near the Merced-Mariposa County line.

The CHP says a Mitsubishi truck was speeding on the highway when it crossed the double yellow line on a curve and crashed into an oncoming Chevrolet truck.

Both people in the Mitsubishi were killed.

One person in the Chevrolet has serious leg injuries and was taken to a Modesto hospital. The driver had minor injuries.

It's not clear yet if alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash.
