SAN RAMON – A helicopter and three ambulances have transported three children and one adult to local hospitals after a minivan crashed into a telephone pole late Thursday night.
At 8:33 pm Thursday night, firefighters and police in San Ramon responded to a report that a vehicle had crashed into a telephone pole on Crow Canyon Road near El Capitan Drive.
A officer who arrived at the scene found four people trapped inside a minivan, including a child with a head injury.
An ambulance was used to transport two children to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland while a third child with more serious injuries was transported to the same location via an air ambulance.
