DUI suspected in California fatality accident

A Sept. 5 car accident has left two children dead and a 36-year-old male driver facing felony charges for suspected DUI. The accident occurred on Highway 166, where the man moved into oncoming traffic while traveling west at a high speed. He reportedly attempted to correct his 2008 Toyota, which caused it to travel into the path of a 2013 Chevrolet driven by a 30-year-old male. As the Chevrolet struck the rear portion of the Toyota, the Toyota launched into the air before rolling. Parts of the car separated, and the young children were ejected.
