A car crash on Cohasset Road sent two people to the hospital with moderate injuries Saturday afternoon.

The crash happened just before 2:30 p.m. near the intersection of Cohasset and Wells Island Road in Butte County.

According to Sergeant Robert Boyer with the California Highway Patrol, a Honda driving east on Cohasset crossed over the center line and crashed into a Ford F350 heading the other direction. 

Boyer said the crash caused the Ford to hit the guardrail and then roll several times down an embankment.

Boyer said firefighters had to extricate an occupant inside the Honda, it only took a couple of minutes to take them out. 

Two people were then taken to Enloe Medical Center, but it is unknown what vehicles each individual was in. 

The CHP said that a 7-year-old might have been inside the Ford, but their condition is unknown at this time.

Traffic was reduced to one lane. 

It is unknown if drugs or alcohol were factors in this crash.

Clear skies have allowed for much cooler temperatures to start your Tuesday, but clouds will quickly increase through the day. Rain and snow will return to northern California this evening, and we'll get cooler on Wednesday. More rain and some high elevation snow will be ahead for the rest of this week and weekend. Models are keeping our region wet through at least the start of next week!
