DESERT CENTER, California (December 28, 2015) — As many as 14 people were injured Saturday afternoon in a collision involving four motorists on the westbound Interstate 10 Freeway at Ford Dry Lake, a California Highway Patrol report said.

Paramedics transported two people who suffered moderate injuries and five with minor injuries to a local hospital for treatment. Seven others were hurt, but declined transportation to a hospital.
