RANCHO SANTA FE (CNS) - A high-end sports racer and an SUV crashed in Rancho Santa Fe Wednesday, and four people were injured.

Photos from the scene showed that an Ariel Atom sports car, a distinctive street-legal racer designed in Great Britain, apparently had collided head-on with a large SUV, possibly a Lincoln Navigator or Ford Expedition.

The vehicles crashed in the 4400 block of La Orilla, east of El Camino Real, shortly after 2 p.m., according to the California Highway Patrol. Two people in one of the vehicles were knocked unconscious in the crash, CHP officials said.

One injured person was taken to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido. Three others were taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, a North County fire dispatcher said. The extent of their injuries were not immediately disclosed.

Firefighters and the CHP closed La Orilla in the vicinity of the crash. CHP officials said it was expected to reopen around 4:45 p.m.
