Five people were transported to the hospital following an early-afternoon collision today on Railroad Avenue near Drayton Street that involved a vehicle from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, according to officials.

The collision, which was first reported around 1:45 p.m., involved three vehicles, one of which was a sheriff’s vehicle, according to Lt. Rob Hahnlein with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

Five people were transported to the hospital following the collision, according to officials.

Two of those who were transported were deputies, according to reports from the scene.

Hahnlein said it does not appear that any of the injuries are too serious. It appeared all five people were conscious when they were transported to the hospital, according to reports from the scene.

The collision closed down Railroad Avenue from Magic Mountain Parkway to Drayton Street. As of 2:45 p.m., Hahnlein said investigators were still at the scene.

The collision and what led up to it remains under investigation, Hahnlein said.

This is the second time in a week that local sheriff’s deputies have been involved in a traffic collision. Two deputies were injured Wednesday morning when their cruiser and a glass company truck collided in Castaic.

In that incident, one deputy was transported to Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, but was released later the same day.
