An armored truck and three other vehicles were involved in a crash Thursday afternoon in Southeast Portland.

Four people were transported to area hospitals. Their names and conditions were not immediately released.

According to Portland Fire & Rescue, at 2:01 pm on Oct. 9, firefighters were called to 3400 S.E. 122nd Ave. When crews arrived, they found a four-vehicle accident scene involving an armored truck with one vehicle on its top. One vehicle was unoccupied and the armored truck's occupants were uninjured.

The other two vehicles each had two occupants. Each vehicle contained an adult male and an adult female. The occupants of these vehicles were all injured and transported to the Oregon Health & Sciences University Hospital and Portland Adventist Medical Center.

One patient had to be extricated from a vehicle using hydraulic tools to cut the vehicle apart.
