VISTA (CNS) - One person sustained serious injuries in a head-on car collision on Melrose Drive in Vista, deputies said Saturday.
Traffic deputies were dispatched to a "serious" collision between a Ford Explorer and a Chevrolet Cobalt at the intersection of South Melrose at Branding Iron Circle about 9:25 p.m., Sheriff's Deputy Kenneth Werner said.
"The Explorer appeared to be making a left turn at the intersection when it collided head-on with the Cobalt," Werner said.
A passenger in the Cobalt sustained serious, non-life threatening injuries. Werner said other vehicle occupants were taken to Palomar Medical Center for evaluation and treatment of their injuries.
Alcohol was not believed to have been a factor in the accident, Werner said.
An investigation was continuing. The crash was just south of Route 78.
