Several people were injured in a serious three-vehicle accident near Rogers Park in Danbury late Saturday, officials said.

At least two people were pinned in a car that had been crushed by a Ford F-350 pickup truck and were waiting to be extricated. It was not immediately clear how many people were involved in the crash or the extent of their injuries.

A third, unidentified, vehicle reportedly fled the scene shortly after the accident, which occurred just before 10 p.m. on Memorial Drive.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
