Local News

Two people were ejected from their car, including a child, Wednesday afternoon in Kings County.

At around 3:26 p.m. near Highway 41 and Nevada Avenue, CHP says a driver of a white van lost control as he overcorrected and ended up flipping over, and rolling the car several times.

The driver and child, at least three-years-old, were ejected, CHP says.

Neither were wearing seat belts, CHP believes, and a child safety seat was not found in the car.

The child ended up near a canal after being ejected, and both suffered minor injuries.

They were taken to Kaweah Delta Medical Center for treatment.

It is not known if drugs and/or alcohol were involved in the crash.
