PORTERVILLE, Calif. (KFSN) -- We've learned an alleged drunk driver killed two young sisters and critically injured two other children in Porterville.

The deadly crash happened Saturday afternoon at Main Street and Orange Avenue.

It then hit an SUV and the traffic light pole.

An 11-year-old girl in the Dodge died at the scene, and her eight-year-old sister died at a nearby hospital.
