     The CHP released more details about that major injury crash on Pacific Coast Highway along Ventura County's south coast Tuesday night.

     They say the driver of the 2012 blue Ford Fusion was northbound on PCH north of La Jolla Canyon when for unknown reasons it drifted into the southbound lanes where it collided head-on with a gray Subaru Forester and a 2010 Toyota Yaris.

     The CHP says two passengers in the Toyota, an 18-year-old female from Oxnard and a 19-year-old female from Oxnard were taken to VCMC with major injuries.

     A 20-year-old female from Oxnard went to Saint John's with a minor injury.

     Meanwhile in the Ford, two male passengers, a 19 and a 12 year old from New Mexico were taken to Los Robles Medical Center with minor injuries.

     The crash shut down PCH in both directions for several hours Tuesday night.

     The CHP says DUI is NOT believed to be a factor in the crash.
