MADERA COUNTY, Calif. (KFSN) -- Two people have been hospitalized with major injuries after a crash in Madera County Thursday afternoon.

The California Highway Patrol says it happened near Avenue 12 and Road 34 1/2 just before 3 pm.

Officers say someone in a Saturn sideswiped a Dodge Caliber, and the Dodge spun out of control before eventually stopping.

The driver of the Saturn continued going in the opposite lane and crashed head-on with a Chevy Traverse. The Chevy ultimately overturned.

Officers say one person in the Saturn was airlifted to Community Regional Medical Center and the other was taken to a hospital in Madera.

Three people in the Chevy, including two children, went to the hospital as a precaution and are expected to be okay.
