SPRING VALLEY, Calif. (KGTV) -- A head-on collision on a Spring Valley street Monday morning sent four people, including a 5-year-old child, to the hospital.

The crash involving a 2006 Nissan Altima and a 2004 Saturn SUV occurred just after 9:45 a.m. in the 9100 block of Jamacha Boulevard, near Kempton Street, according to the California Highway Patrol.

CHP officials said the Nissan was traveling eastbound on Jamacha Boulevard when it veered into westbound lanes and struck the front of the Saturn SUV. The impact sent the Saturn into a parked BMW before it came to rest.

The Nissan’s 29-year-old female driver was taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital after sustaining major injuries, the CHP said. A 5-year-old, who was sitting in a car seat in the back of the Nissan, was transported to Rady Children’s Hospital with moderate injuries.

The Saturn’s 46-year-old male driver and a passenger in the SUV were hospitalized with moderate injuries.

CHP officials said the crash is under investigation, but they noted that alcohol and/or drugs did not appear to have been a factor in the collision at this time.
