Two people were injured after their vehicles were in a head-on collision Thursday afternoon in Turlock.

The injuries to both drivers were considered non-life threatening, though each were taken to area hospitals. One person was taken by air ambulance and another by ground, according to the Turlock Police Department.

The names of the two injured drivers were not available.

The head-on collision happened around 4:30 p.m. Thursday on W. Main Street, near the intersection with Clinton Road.

The collision was set into motion after one driver drove through a puddle of water and lost control of the vehicle, said Turlock Police spokesman Sgt. Russ Holeman. The vehicle spun and veered into the other lane, where it hit another vehicle head-on in the oncoming traffic.

Both drivers were pinned inside their vehicles and had to be extricated by the Turlock Fire Department.

Alcohol and drugs were not considered to be factors in the collision.

The collision did cause the road to be blocked for several hours, causing traffic to be diverted onto other roads.
