The Traffic Division's Major Crash Team responded to conduct an investigation. Preliminary information indicates that a passenger car occupied by three people being driven northbound on Skyline, crossed the center line and crashed head-on into a large delivery truck being driven southbound on Skyline, occupied by two people.

All three people in the passenger car were injured in the crash - both people in the truck were not injured.

Traffic remains closed on Skyline until tows and clean-up can be complete. No additional updates are expected this evening.
