Ten people, including a few children, were taken to hospitals after a multi-vehicle crash in Northeast D.C., authorities said.

About 11:15 a.m. Tuesday, police arrived at the scene of a crash at New York Avenue and Brentwood Parkway. The crash involved three vehicles, including a minivan that contained children, said police spokeswoman Officer Tisha Gant.

D.C. Fire and EMS personnel evaluated 12 people at the scene, and 10 of them were taken to hospitals, Battalion Chief Brian Lee said.

Seven people, including at least two children, were taken by ambulance bus to Georgetown University Hospital. Lee said that he did not know exactly how many children were transported.

Additionally, two women were taken to Washington Hospital Center, and one man was taken to Howard University Hospital. All 10 people taken to hospitals had non-life threatening injuries, Lee said.

A portion of New York Avenue was closed after the crash, but had reopened at about 1 p.m.
