Several people were taken to the hospital Sunday night after a head-on collision involving three vehicles in San Marcos, authorities reported. The incident occurred around 8 p.m. near South Santa Fe Avenue and North Rancho Santa Fe Road. Witnesses reported that a blue Honda SUV was traveling in the wrong direction in the eastbound lanes of South Santa Fe Avenue and collided with a red Honda SUV and a white Toyota sedan, according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department in a press release. Inside the red Honda SUV were a 24-year-old father, a 22-year-old mother, and their baby, agents reported. The parents were transported to Palomar Medical Center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, while the baby, who was not injured at the scene of the accident, was taken to Rady Children's Hospital as a precaution, according to the SDSO.
