A two-vehicle collision in Upper Ojai Oct. 7 sent three people to the hospital with major injuries.
The crash was reported at 10:13 a.m. on Highway 150, west of Old Walnut Road.
According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), a 2005 Dodge, driven by a 47-year-old Oak View woman, was traveling east when it crossed into the westbound lane and struck a 2017 Hyundai head on.
The collision blocked both lanes of the highway.
The driver of the Dodge was extricated from her vehicle and flown by helicopter to Los Robles Regional Medical Center in Thousand Oaks with major injuries.
The driver of the Hyundai, an 89-year-old Oceanside man, and his passenger, an 81-year-old Santa Paula man, were both extricated and taken by ambulance to Ventura County Medical Center with major injuries.
Highway 150 was shut down for approximately 90 minutes while emergency personnel worked to clear the crash, which is still under investigation by the CHP.
