Yuba County, Calif. - The CHP is investigating a crash that killed two people on Marysville Road in the Dobbins area of Yuba County.
it happened just before six o'clock Sunday night just west of Yuba Ranch Way.

Officers say the driver of a Subaru Outback left the road and hit a tree. The driver,  27 year old Ilya Koloyartsev, and his front seat passenger, 31 year old Jennifer Coffey ... both of Oregon House ... were pronounced dead at the scene.

A one year old boy riding in a child safety seat had moderate injuries and was taken to U.C. Davis Medical Center for treatment.

Action News Now spoke with CHP Officials and they said they are investigating the possibility Koloyartsev was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. They said it will take a toxicology report to confirm that, and that it could take several weeks for the results.
