Overnight midtown accident sends five to the hospital

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police are investigating a crash that sent several people to the hospital. 

The accident happened just before 10 p.m. Tuesday night, near First Avenue and Roger Road. 

According to Tucson Fire officials two vehicles were involved, with paramedics taking five people to the hospital, two of which were children.

"You just have to buckle them up, no ifs ands or buts about it.  Car seats are age appropriate and if they're out of the car seats they either have to be in a booster seat or restrained at all times.  Because you just never know when you're going to get in that accident and that is the number one thing you can do to protect your children is to make sure they're restrained properly," said Barrett Baker, Tucson Fire Captain.

No word yet on the conditions of the crash victims.
