Two 12-year-old Fresno girls were seriously injured early Monday when the car they were riding in collided with another car on Highway 152 west of Highway 99 in Madera County, the California Highway Patrol said.
The girls were riding in a car driven by Carey Johnson, 56, of Fresno, the CHP said. Johnson was westbound on Highway 152 shortly before 6:30 a.m. when he made a U-turn. A car driven by Danny Swenson, 38, of Clovis, also westbound on Highway 152, was unable to stop in time and collided with Johnson's car.
Swenson was not injured. Johnson sustained minor injuries. He and the girls were taken to Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno.
