EL CAJON, Calif. (KGTV) - A chain reaction crash on SR-125 in East County sent two drivers to the hospital Monday.

A 25-year-old woman driving a Hyundai failed to stop in time to avoid hitting a Toyota Camry at the Grossmont Center Dr. exit at 9:10 a.m., CHP Officer Kevin Pearlstein said.

The Hyundai rear-ended the Camry, pushing the Camry into oncoming traffic on SR-125.

A Chevy Impala driver on the freeway did not have time to react and struck the driver’s side of the Camry, officers said.

Officers had to pull the Camry’s driver, a 23-year-old woman, from her vehicle. She was taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital with moderate to major injuries.

The driver of the Impala had moderate injuries.

The Hyundai’s driver, a 49-year-old woman, was not hurt.

CHP officers do not suspect drugs and alcohol as factors in the crash.
