Two helicopters were requested to land at the scene of the crash, but as one victim was no longer stable enough to fly, the second helicopter was canceled and the person from the 2007 Honda was rushed to a local hospital in grave condition.

Firefighters had to use special tools to free the driver of the older-model Honda after he became trapped inside his vehicle. He was airlifted to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center with critical injuries.
