NICE – An early afternoon collision near Nice on Monday resulted in injuries and a temporary closure of Highway 20.


The two-vehicle collision, which was reported shortly before 12:30 p.m., involved a car rear-ending another, according to an initial California Highway Patrol report.


At least one person from each vehicle was transported to area hospitals, including one to Sutter Lakeside and another by REACH air ambulance to Santa Rosa.


Both directions of Highway 20 were closed for about an hour, CHP reported.


Traffic was backed up a half-mile in each direction, with westbound traffic diverted at Pyle Road and the Nice-Lucerne Cutoff.


CHP reported that the crash victims suffered minor injuries. No other information about the collision was available late Monday afternoon.
