Woman, 2 girls killed after car crashes into Ceres home

CERES, Calif. (AP) — Authorities in central California say a 38-year-old woman and two little girls, ages 5 and 3, died from their injuries after a car crashed into their home in Ceres.

The Modesto Bee reports a 10-year-old girl was taken to a hospital with major injuries after the car went through the fence and backyard of a duplex before crashing into the home early Sunday.

The California Highway Patrol says alcohol and/or drugs are suspected and that the car’s driver, 46-year-old Felix Ferdin of Modesto, was arrested. Officials say he had only minor injuries.

The CHP says Ferdin was booked into jail on three counts of gross vehicular manslaughter and felony driving under the influence.

The CHP was working Monday morning to confirm the relationship between the woman and the three children.
