Los Angeles County Fire Department personnel were called to the scene of a two-vehicle collision near the Santa Clarita Valley Aquatic Center Tuesday.

At approximately 3:30 p.m., two vehicles collided with one another, sending one off the road and onto a sidewalk where it eventually came to a stop, but only after it crashed into a grassy embankment, according to officials on the scene.

The airbags in both vehicles were deployed and the drivers were able to get out of their vehicles and communicate with first responders, according to Fire Department personnel.

“No one was transported because of the collision,” said Supervising Fire Dispatcher Melanie Flores. However, one of the passengers had a minor head injury, but received treatment on the scene.

The collision resulted in deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station not only being called out to investigate the cause of the incident, but also direct traffic because the second vehicle had come to a stop in the middle of Centre Pointe Parkway.

Deputies closed off through traffic while the scene was cleared of both vehicles and their debris, but reopened the roads and entrance to the Aquatic Center and Santa Clarita Sports Complex by 4 p.m.
