CALEXICO — Four people were injured in a two-car collision that closed Meadows Road to traffic for about two hours in the northeast part of the city Saturday.

Calexico police Sgt. Jim Neujahr said the cause of the 2:56 p.m. accident appeared to be a vehicle traveling eastbound on Zapata Street that failed to yield to a vehicle traveling on Meadows.

Neujahr said he did not have all of the details about the accident.

The names, ages, hometowns and extent of injuries are unknown, though all of the occupants, including two adults and two minors, were transported to El Centro Regional Medical Center. It is also unknown who was riding in which car.

Calexico fire Capt. Ernesto Avila said eight firefighters responded to the scene, where the Amkus extrication tool was used to remove a woman from one of the vehicles.
