The driver of one of the cars, a convertible, was pinned inside the car. Firefighters had to use the “jaws of life,” a tool used to cut and remove large pieces of metal, to remove the door and get the driver out. 

The three people involved in the crash were taken to local hospitals. Their conditions are not known. 

California Highway Patrol then took over the scene of the crash.
