Authorities say a crash in two-way traffic on a Northern California highway has now killed a second toddler, bringing the death total to five.

California Highway Patrol Officer Michael Bradley says the second toddler, a boy, died at a hospital Saturday night. A girl and three women died at the scene.

Bradley says all the dead were in a Honda Civic that collided with a Chevy Silverado about 5:30 p.m. Saturday on State Route 12 near Rio Vista about 40 miles southwest of Sacramento.

The four people in the Silverado were also taken to a hospital, but they had only minor injuries.

Bradley says the Civic was passing other vehicles on the two-way highway and lost control as it tried to get back over in time. The Silverado then slammed into it.
