Port Arthur firefighters and policemen were called to an accident in which one vehicle caught fire.
The accident happened shortly after noon Monday near the intersection of Gulfway Drive and Savannah Avenue and involved four vehicles.
A witness said one of the drivers was trying to pass a car and struck another vehicle head-on.
"The best we can tell now is a vehicle was westbound on Gulfway Drive, approached a red light at Gulfway and Savannah, it appears he was driving excessively and went around some vehicles and ended up hitting one of them, then crossed the intersection and hit another vehicle," said Port Arthur Police Sgt. Jeremy Lloyd.
Sgt. Lloyd said the vehicle then spun and caught fire before coming to a stop.
Sgt. Lloyd said one person had to be removed from a vehicle using a jaws of life. Two people were sent to Christus Hospital St. Elizabeth in Beaumont. Sgt. Lloyd did not know the extent of the injuries.
Investigators are working to determine how fast the cars were going and other factors of the accident. They are also checking to see if surveillance video from a nearby business caught the accident.
