Two people were injured in a serious crash in Vernon on Monday night.

Officers were called to the intersection of Bamforth Road and Baker Road around 11:15 p.m.

Investigators said a 2002 Ford Focus was stopped on the side of the road due to mechanical issues and a 2011 GMC Sierra stopped to assist.

The driver of the GMC Sierra was underneath the Ford Focus when it was struck by a 2019 Toyota Tundra traveling north on Bamforth Road, according to police.

The driver of the GMC Sierra that was underneath the Ford Focus sustained serious injuries in the crash, authorities said. The person was transported to Hartford Hospital and is currently in stable condition.

A second person who was the passenger in the GMC Sierra was struck while being outside of the vehicles and sustained minor injuries, police added. That person was also transported to Hartford Hospital.

The Toyota Tundra left the scene after the crash, but investigators said it was found a short time later. The driver of the Toyota Tundra was later transported to Rockville Hospital for an evaluation.

All three vehicles were towed from the scene.

The crash remains under investigation. No charges have been filed at this time.
