VANCOUVER -- A collision early Monday morning between a pickup truck and car sent five people to the hospital, three in critical condition.

The five were all riding in a Honda Civic that collided with a pickup on West 4th Plain Boulevard and Fruit Valley Road. The pickup driver was not seriously injured, according to rescue crews and police.

Both vehicles were westbound on 4th Plain and the car had just left the grounds of the OnTrac delivery company for lunch break, an employee told KGW.

What led to the collision remained under investigation Monday morning. Eastbound lanes of 4th Plain were closed during the investigation.
