Six people were taken to three hospitals after a 2018 Mercedes going southbound in northbound lanes of Laurel Canyon Boulevard struck another sedan in Studio City, authorities said Sunday.

The crash was reported at 12:50 a.m. Saturday at 3057 N. Laurel Canyon Blvd., a Valley Traffic officer said.

The 20-year-old woman driving the Mercedes drifted into the northbound lanes striking a 2014 Nissan Altima, the officer said.

Three people were taken to hospitals from the Mercedes and three from the Altima, including both drivers, he said. One person in the Altima suffered a fractured spine in the crash. The rest had lacerations and bruises.

Neither drugs nor alcohol were believed factors in the crash, the officer said. The crash remained under investigation.
