October 5, 2011- Two high school students were injured in a crash Wednesday morning, in Modesto north of Fresno.
A 17 year-old Ceres teen was driving a silver Honda Civic westbound on Scenic Drive at approximately 7:30 AM, with her 16 year-old passenger from Modesto.
For unexplained reasons, the driver lost control of the Honda and swerved into the eastbound traffic. The passenger side of the vehicle was broadsided by a blue Mitsubishi Eclipse.
The driver of the Honda suffered minor injuries and the passenger was seriously injured. They were taken to local hospitals.
The driver of the Eclipse, a Lodi resident, was not injured.
Officers said that speed and road conditions were believed to be factors in the accident. The street was slippery from an overnight rain storm.
