KINGSBURG, Calif. (AP) -- The California Highway Patrol says two officers have been killed in an early morning accident in Fresno County.

CHP Capt. Dave Paris says the officers were killed while responding to a call of a multi-vehicle accident on Highway 99 in the Central Valley town of Kingsburg around 6 a.m. Monday.

Paris says the officers' car lost control and slammed into a guardrail. Two male officers died after their vehicle overturned.

The names of the officers have not been released.
