CHICO, Calif. - Several people were badly hurt in a two-car crash this afternoon in North Chico.

The CHP says one car was merging onto Highway 99 North on Eaton and the other car just did not see them coming.

They both side-swiped and spun off the road.

Police closed down one lane of the highway.

One car carried two elderly people. At least one of them has major injuries.

The other car had several people inside.

We're working to learn those people's conditions, but we do know no one died at the scene.

Cooler weather the next few days before we warm up again this weekend flirting with more record high temperatures. By next week we get even cooler but we also have the possibility of high fire danger next week.
