Four people were injured in a crash Friday morning on Highway 184 at East Wilson Road.

Vanessa Ortegon, 23, of Bakersfield, was driving westbound on East Wilson Road at Highway 184 at 6:05 a.m., according to California Highway Patrol officers. Another motorist, Sylvia Espinosa, 29, was driving northbound on Highway 184 approaching East Wilson Road.

Ortegon made a left turn onto southbound Highway 184 and failed to yield the right of way to Espinosa, officers said. Espinosa braked but was unable to avoid hitting the left rear side of Ortegon's vehicle.

Two children in Ortegon's vehicle weren't wearing seat belts and suffered major injuries, officers said. Espinosa and Ortegon suffered minor injuries.

The CHP is reminding motorists to always buckle up and make sure children are properly restrained.
