Upon arriving at the scene, authorities described a Hispanic male wearing a white tank top in obvious pain holding his neck and limping around the area.
Per the CHP dispatch team, a witness stated to authorities that they saw someone involved in the collision walk over to the side of the road and dispose of something into a sewage gutter.
As gas leaked from both vehicles throughout the road, police began perusing the scene for evidence to help determine the cause of the collision which was not mentioned in the report.
At least two people suffered injuries and were allegedly transported to hospitals for their injuries.
No further details were readily made available.

A forensic examination of both vehicles involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, and whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicles such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, those injured and not found responsible for the crash may be granted the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party pending the investigation results. Victims would then have the right to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, pain and suffering, and lost future income.
