No one inside the van was wearing their seatbelts. At least two people were ejected from the vehicle.

Sgt. Leonard Sherman with the California Highway Patrol One who may have been wearing a seatbelt was the driver, however the seat belt failed, and tore from the shoulder hardens, so it actually ripped."

The intersection was closed for several hours.
