A head-on collision in Placer County on Monday left at least five children and adults injured.

A car eastbound about 9:30 a.m. Monday on Foresthill Road, about midway between Auburn and Foresthill, crossed over the double-yellow line and struck a westbound car.

The cars spun out of control, which caused a collision with a third car. That third car went up an embankment and was heavily damaged.

The first two drivers and three children were taken to the hospital, according to the California Highway Patrol. Injuries were described as moderate to major.

No information was available on the third driver.
