Three women were thrown from a car and the driver was arrested on felony charges of driving under the influence in a one-vehicle crash Monday near Porterville, the California Highway Patrol reported.
The CHP said Blanca Lopez, 20, of Porterville was driving a 2006 Toyota south on Highway 65, south of Avenue 184, about 8:20 p.m. when she lost control and drove off the road, where the car overturned and the three were ejected.
Lopez sustained major injuries and was taken to Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno. Her passengers — Michelle Blalock, 19, and Jasmine Rodriguez, 20, both of Porterville — were taken to Kaweah Delta Hospital with moderate injuries.
