WILLIAMS, Calif. - Two people were killed and one person was injured in a crash on I-5 near Williams on Sunday night.

Around 11:50 p.m. on Sunday, officers were dispatched to a crash on southbound I-5, north of Lurline Avenue. 

The officers found a vehicle rolled over on its roof, blocking a lane of traffic. 

During the investigation, officers determined that two people were ejected from the vehicle as a result of the crash. They were not wearing seatbelts. 

Authorities said that Edward Kenneth Perez, 31, was driving a 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe southbound on I-5 at a high rate of speed. For unknown reasons, he drove the vehicle on the right shoulder and then steered across to the left across both lanes of traffic. The maneuver caused the car to overturn multiple times before coming to rest on its roof. 

Perez was transported to Enloe Medical Center with moderate injuries. 

Two other passengers were pronounced deceased at the scene and their identities have not been released. 

California Highway Patrol believes drugs and alcohol may be a factor in the collision.

The investigation is ongoing. Stay tuned for updates.
