Four people were rushed to the hospital Thursday morning following a two-vehicle head-on traffic collision on Sierra Highway, near Sand Canyon Road.

At least one of the injured people had to be extricated from one of the vehicles, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department told The Signal Thursday.

The crash happened about 6:20 a.m. Thursday, on Sierra Highway, near Fitch Avenue, and about 1,000 feet from Sand Canyon Road.

Firefighters arrived at the crash site at 6:28 a.m.

“We had one person trapped (inside a vehicle) who was extricated,” the Fire Department spokesman said.

“There were two cars, four patients,” he said.

Reports from passing motorists received by the California Highway Patrol identified the vehicles as a Ford Ranger and a Toyota.

Firefighters cleared from the crash scene at 7:25 a.m.
