Truck plows into intersection in fiery California crash
SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) — A dump truck plowed through a California intersection Monday, slamming into a number of other vehicles that caught fire and sent six people to hospitals, authorities said. No fatalities were immediately reported.
Ten vehicles were involved in the midmorning crash in Santa Rosa, about 60 miles (97 kilometers) north of San Francisco, police Lt. Ryan Corcoran said.
Six vehicles burned, and the six people were treated at three hospitals for minor to serious injuries, police Lt. Ryan Corcoran said.
Bystanders and arriving firefighters pulled people from burning cars, including a screaming woman trapped in a van.
The cause of the accident was under investigation.
Santa Rosa, a city of 175,000 people, was devastated by a wildfire in October.
