OAKLAND -- Seven people, including three children, were injured in a two-car crash in east Oakland late Friday, a fire official said.

Fire crews and paramedics responded to 92nd Avenue and B Street at 8:57 p.m. where two cars collided, sending one halfway down a block and scattering debris across the road, said Battalion Chief Emon Usher with the Oakland Fire Department.

Usher said three of the seven injured were in critical condition when they were transported to local hospitals, but he did not say if those severely injured were children. The other four patients suffered minor to moderate injuries.

Four of the patients were taken to Highland Hospital in Oakland. One child was transported to Children's Hospital in Oakland. The two remaining patients were rushed to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley.

The cause of the crash was not known late Friday.
