SACRAMENTO — All lanes of westbound Business 80 closed at the P Street exit due to a rollover multiple-vehicle collision that injured seven people.

Four cars were involved in the string of collisions that began when a 24-year-old woman lost control of her car as she was driving down the road just north of P Street.

CHP reports the woman's 2000 Toyota struck another car being driven by a 42-year-old man. The man's car, in turn, collided with a 2002 Ford as it veered into another lane.

As a result, the Ford's front passenger, a 21-year-old who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the car as its 22-year-old driver crashed into the center divider wall. The car stopped in the roadway when it overturned onto its side.

The 21-year-old passenger was transported to UC Davis Medical Center with major injuries. The three drivers and three other passengers were evaluated and transported to local hospitals complaining of pain.

Officials say drugs nor alcohol were factors in the collisions.

At 3:57 p.m. all lanes reopened to traffic, according to Caltrans.
