Three people were seriously injured when the car they were in crashed violently into a tree on Highway 88 in Lockeford, according to the California Highway Patrol.

An intoxicated man, whose name and age is unknown, was driving a 2002 Ford Taurus with two passengers east on Highway 88 near Brandt Road at about 5:45 a.m. Saturday, according to a CHP report. He crossed a paved shoulder, partially entered a drainage ditch on the south side of the highway and then struck a tree, the CHP reported.

The driver and both passengers were extricated from the car by Mokelumne and Clements firefighters. The driver was transported to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, according to the CHP.

The passengers, Misty Karge, 24, and Heather Griffin, 24, both from Stockton, were transported to Kaiser Hospital in South Sacramento, the CHP reported. All three received major injuries, according to the report.
