Five people were transported to the hospital via ground ambulance following collision between two vehicles around 12:59 p.m. at the intersection of Greenwald Avenue and Tyson Street near Highway 74.
The accident occurred when a white Honda Civic that was traveling southbound on Greenwald Avenue attempted to make a left turn onto Tyson Street.
A red GMC Sonoma pickup truck had been traveling northbound on Tyson and broadsided the sedan before flipping over once and landing on its wheels next to the other vehicle, California Highway Patrol officer Larry Vicino said.
There were three occupants within each vehicle, for a total of six between the two.
Five of the six individuals sustained moderate to major injuries, according to Vicino.
Three ambulances and three fire engines responded to the scene following the accident, according to SWRNN reporter Joe Fanaselle.
The driver of the pickup truck was the only person not injured in the crash.
He received medical attention at the scene before being transported to see the other people, Vicino said.
The worst injury was that of the passenger in the back seat of the Honda Civic, who Vicino said received major head injuries.
Alcohol or drugs did not appear to be a factor in this collision, according to Vicino, who also said that speed was not a factor.
Vicino encouraged drivers to scan the horizon and verify that they have a clean roadway before making turns.
