A family of 4 was killed in a wrong way crash in California this weekend. On Feb. 9, Mail Online reported that six people were killed after 21-year-old Olivia Culbreath drove her Camaro the wrong way down a California highway going over 100 mph just before 5 a.m. on Sunday. Police believe that Culbreath was intoxicated.

"All four people in the SUV were killed, as were the two passengers in the wrong-way Camaro blamed in the pileup, but the driver survived and is clinging to life in a local hospital, according to NBC Los Angeles. One other person was also injured" (Mail Online).

The family of 4 in the wrong way crash were traveling in the SUV which Culbreath hit head-on. The Camaro that she was driving then slammed into a third car and the driver of that car was the other person that was injured. Culbreath is listed in stable condition and has reportedly talked to police already. She has already been charged with counts of vehicular manslaughter and felony DUI. Alcohol and speed are believed to be the primary factors in the crash.

At this point in time, authorities have not released many details about the deceased. The ages and names are unknown but police did say that four females and two males were killed. Four were pronounced dead at the scene and another two were pronounced dead at nearby hospitals.

The family of 4 in the wrong way crash could have been adults or children -- police have not said if everyone involved was over the age of 18.
