The truck rolled over and two passengers fled the scene, according to SAPD.

Police say they are unsure of why the passengers ran from the scene and are not searching for them.

The driver of the truck sustained non-life threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital, according to police.

The driver of the Kia also sustained non-life threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital. The male passenger and two small children in the Kia were uninjured, police say.
