One of the drivers, 20-year-old Stacy Gallardo of Los Osos, was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. Her passenger, 18-year-old Wendy Gallardo, was also taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. A four month old in the back of her car was flown to Children's Hospital of the Central Valley with major injuries.

The other driver, 32-year-old Jeffre Sterkel of Los Osos, had no injuries.
