On arrival, crews evaluated two drivers with complaints of potential spinal injuries. Since both drivers were properly restrained, it's likely that more severe injuries were prevented.

One patient was transported to the hospital via ambulance for further evaluation. CHP is currently investigating the accident. A total of 5 Lakeside Fire personnel responded to the incident.
