Six people including three children were "critically injured" and airlifted to the hospital Sunday following a two-vehicle crash near Gorman, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.

About 5 p.m. Sunday, two vehicles collided in the southbound lanes of Interstate 5, near Gorman School Road, said Fire Department Captain Chris Rash.

“We currently have three paramedic airships en route,” Rash said shortly before 5:30 p.m.

“We’re trying to get six critically injured people - three kids, three adults - to the hospital,” he said.

Shortly before 5:30 p.m., paramedics were trying to “extricate” some of the victims from at least one of the vehicles, he said.

One of the cars had rolled over on impact, he said.

About 5:45 p.m. Sunday, California Highway Patrol officers shut down all southbound lanes to allow rescue helicopters to land on the interstate and treat the victims, according to the CHP.

CHP officers expected to have the southbound lanes of the freeway closed to traffic for about 30 minutes.
