Police say the Toyota Corolla hit a Nissan Maxima head-on and the Charger hit a Ford Explorer head-on, which caused the SUV to roll.

The driver of the Explorer sustained the most injuries, per police, and had to be extricated from the vehicle.

However, all of the drivers were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. No passengers were in any of the vehicles, police say.

A witness on scene, Robert Rodriguez, said he was driving with his wife in the opposite direction when they saw a vehicle coming their way. He said they had no time to react.

"It was right off the bat," Rodriguez said. "I just moved out of the way, praying I don't get hit."

Investigators were still working to clear the scene, as of around 9:50 p.m.

We’ll bring more details of the crash as they become available.
