Three San Jose residents and a Los Banos man were hospitalized Wednesday after a head-on car accident on U.S. Highway 152 outside of Gilroy, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Dennis Galindo, 39, of San Jose, and Raymond Estrada, 45, of Los Banos, were flown via medical helicopter to Regional Medical Center of San Jose and Valley Medical Center respectively with major injuries following the crash, which occurred around 3:40 p.m., the CHP said.

Dennis Galindo suffered a broken neck, broken leg and collapsed lung, while his passengers, Yvonne Galindo, 36, and and a five-month-old child, were taken to Valley Medical Center as a precaution.

The CHP said Estrada suffered broken legs and complaints of stomach pain.

Dennis Galindo was driving a Toyota Tundra pickup truck west on Highway 152 when the vehicle drifted into the eastbound lane and collided with Estrada’s Ford pickup truck, according to a CHP report.

The highway was shut down from Bloomfield Road to Lovers Lane until 5:40 p.m. The cause of the collision is under investigation. Alcohol or drugs do not appear to be a factor, according to the CHP.

Following the accident, three other vehicle collisions occurred in the stop-and-go traffic.
