SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Four people, including three children, were hurt Sunday in a crash in the Skyline section of San Diego.

The crash took place around 6:50 p.m. at 6600 Skyline Drive, according to San Diego police Officer L. Fisher.

A 70-year-old man driving a 2019 Ford F250 stopped for a red light as he was headed east on Skyline Drive, Fisher said. The man was intending to turn right onto Woodman Street.

Meanwhile, a 25-year-old man driving a 2001 Honda with three young children inside rear-ended the Ford.

The children -- a pair of 3-year-olds and a 4-year-old -- were not properly fastened in when the crash happened.

All three suffered serious injuries and were transported to a hospital. The 70-year-old man in the other vehicle suffered a neck injury, Fisher said.

There was no immediate word as to whether the Honda driver was hurt, and no explanation immediately given as to why the children were not harnessed into safety seats.

The crash was being investigated by the SDPD.
