Double Fatality on Highway 46

September 2, 2011- a crash Friday night left two teenagers from Hanford dead, and four others with serious injuries. The accident occurred at about 9 PM.

The crash happened along Highway 46, east of Cholame in San Luis Obispo County, southwest of Visalia. A 1998 Toyota Camry carrying six teens, was traveling eastbound on Highway 46. The driver, April Canseco of Stratford, lost control of the Camry when it blew a rear tire and hit the center divider, just west of Kecks Road. The blown tire caused the car to roll several times.
