Three hurt in two-vehicle crash in Arcadia

ARCADIA — A man, a woman and teenage boy suffered injuries Thursday in a two-vehicle crash on First Avenue, officials said.
Rescuers first responded to reports of the crash just before 11:40 a.m. on First Avenue, just south of Huntington Drive, Arcadia police Sgt. Dan Crowther said.
A small SUV containing a woman estimated to be in her 60s and a teen was southbound on First Avenue, just south of Huntington Drive, prior to the crash, officials said.
The SUV collided with a sedan that was backing out of a parking space onto First Avenue, Arcadia Fire Department spokeswoman Beth Stogner said in a written statement.
“The SUV overturned upon impact with the opposing vehicle,” Stogner said.
The sedan was occupied by a man in his 40s or 50s, Arcadia Fire Department Battalion Chief Mike Lang said.
All three people involved in the crash were freed from the wreckage and taken to a hospital for treatment of apparent neck and back injuries, Stogner said.
The injuries appeared to be “minor to moderate,” Lang said.
The crash was being investigated by the Arcadia Police Department. Crowther said nothing criminal was initially suspected.
