LOS BANOS -- A Hoover High assistant basketball coach and five students were involved in a solo-vehicle crash Thursday on westbound Highway 152, east of Los Banos. At least one student has serious injuries, the California Highway Patrol reported.
The crash was reported at 10:27 a.m. east of Carlucci Road. The coach, 30-year-old Michael McDonald, was driving a rented Dodge Caravan carrying five boys, ages 15 to 17. For unknown reasons, the van drifted to the right side of the road.
The van struck a wooden power pole, slid, overturned and hit a guard rail, according to CHP officer Jesse Lopez.
