FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- An early morning crash in Fresno County turned deadly and officers say alcohol was a factor.

She drove directly into the path of a Nissan Truck with two adults and a child inside.

Thao had major injuries from the crash and was taken to the hospital. A 38-year-old man who was in the car with Thao died from his injuries.

The three people in the truck had minor injuries.

Police say Thao was under the influence of alcohol and will be placed under arrest.

The man who died has not been identified and the investigation is ongoing.
