A collision on Soledad Canyon Road in Canyon Country on Tuesday injured one driver and caused a chain reaction of crashes.

The driver of the first car was turning right from Golden Oak Road to Soledad around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday when the vehicle reportedly cut off another vehicle, which slammed into the first.

The impact sent the first car across the center divider and into oncoming traffic. The driver of a third car slammed on his brakes to avoid hitting the vehicle that had careened across the divider and was rear-ended by a fourth vehicle.

A short time later, a driver yielding to an ambulance that was responding to the first collision stopped his vehicle abruptly and was rear-ended by yet another car.

The driver of the first car was taken to the hospital and will be cited as an unlicensed driver, a deputy at the scene said. No other injuries were reported.
