The wreck was reported about 10:20 p.m. on the two-lane highway between the Antioch Bridge and Highway 12, the CHP said. The area is in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta in southern Sacramento County.

A Mazda reportedly traveling southbound at a high rate of speed went over the double-yellow lines and into the opposing lane of traffic, colliding with an oncoming Audi, according to CHP spokesman Officer Mark Leavitt. The Mazda overturned and the Audi spun out to the right shoulder.

The Mazda's driver, a 38-year-old San Ramon man who may have been intoxicated, was not wearing a seatbelt and died at the scene, Leavitt said. His identity has not yet been revealed publicly.

Two boys in the Mazda's back seat, ages 6 and 4, were not wearing seatbelts and sustained major injuries. A 15-year-old girl in the front passenger seat may have been wearing a seatbelt, Leavitt said. All three children were hospitalized.
