Ten people were injured in two separate vehicle collision incidents that rocked Brentwood Saturday night.
According to East Contra Costa Fire Protection District Battalion Chief Jeff Burris, a head-on collision was reported at 8:32 p.m. at the intersection of Sellers Avenue and Church Road.
Emergency personnel arrived at the scene and found two people injured, one of them seriously. One victim was extricated from a vehicle and airlifted to John Muir Medical Center Walnut Creek. The other person was transported to a hospital in a ground ambulance.
Both vehicles were totaled.
The cause of the collision is under investigation by the California Highway Patrol. Both vehicles were totaled, Burris said. The severity of injuries to the person transported via ground ambulance wasn’t provided.

They arrived at the Lonetree Way and Brentwood Boulevard scene to find eight people injured and immediately conducted triage.
