A head-on crash east of Clovis killed four people, including two children, Sunday morning and injured two other people.


The collision happened on Academy Avenue just south of Shields Avenue just before 2 a.m.

A 28-year-old woman was driving a 2002 Ford SUV southbound on Academy, but she drifted into the wrong lane and collided head-on with a Toyota pickup truck, California Highway Patrol officers say.

The collision killed four people in the Ford, including the driver 28-year-old Violet Johnson of Fresno, Violet's sister 24-year-old Amber Johnson of Auberry, a 5-year-old Bradley Earp and Jacob Earp, 21-months-old. Another 5-year-old passenger in the Ford suffered major injuries in the crash. The driver of the Toyota pickup also suffered major injuries.

CHP officers say the driver and front passenger of the Ford were not wearing seatbelts at the time of the collision. Two of the children were not properly restrained and the third was not wearing a seatbelt at all.

The cause of the crash is under investigation and officers aren't sure yet if alcohol and/or drugs were a contributing factor in this collision.
