Two drivers suffered serious injuries in a crash that shut down part of a Fountain Valley thoroughfare Tuesday morning, according to authorities.
Fountain Valley police responded to the intersection of Bushard Street and Talbert Avenue at about 8:45 a.m. after a Buick Century sedan traveling east on Talbert broadsided a Nissan Versa hatchback as it turned left onto Bushard from westbound Talbert, police said.
The man driving the Nissan suffered major head trauma and was taken to a hospital, where he was in critical but stable condition as of late Tuesday, according to police.
The driver of the Buick, a woman, was taken to a hospital with a major leg fracture, police said.
No passengers were involved in the collision, police said.
The intersection was closed for hours while police investigated the incident. Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash, according to authorities.
