Six people were injured in a three-vehicle crash Tuesday morning in west suburban Melrose Park.

About 5:35 a.m., a vehicle was eastbound on North Avenue near Thatcher Avenue when it crossed the center line and struck another vehicle head-on, according to Melrose Park Police Chief Sam Pitassi. The second vehicle then slid into a third vehicle.

Four people were taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, and two others were taken to Gottlieb Memorial Hospital in Melrose Park, Pitassi said. None of the injuries were considered life-threatening.

Additional information was not immediately available Tuesday morning.
