Four of the five occupants of all vehicles were transported to local area hospitals for treatment of various injuries. The rear-seat passenger of the Ford, a 71-year-old female, had to be extricated from the vehicle. This female was transported to a local hospital, and is in critical condition. The remainder of the occupants are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, two of which are being hospitalized.
