    Two adults and two children were taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries following a car crash on Trout Brook Drive in West Hartford that severely damaged both cars involved, according to police.

    Police said 18-year-old Nhi Phan was driving southbound on Trout Brook Drive in the area of Fern Street around 10:40 Wednesday morning when she lost control of her vehicle, which slid into the northbound lane and struck a car driven by Erik Beard, 41.

    Phan’s Nissan Pathfinder rolled over onto the passenger side. Phan, Beard and Beard’s two 6- and 7-year-old children, who had been buckled into car seats, were taken to St. Francis Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

    Both cars were heavily damaged and were towed from the scene, police said.

    Phan told police she had braked for a car that had slowed down in front of her. She was issued a citation for driving too fast for the road conditions.
