Two cars carrying infants collided head-on Friday night in North Hills, causing severe injuries to the adults but no fatalities, police said.

The collision occurred close to midnight when a Buick sedan traveling eastbound along Parthenia Street in North Hills drifted into the westbound lanes, according to Sgt. Jimmy Chong of the Los Angeles Police Department.

The sedan, with two adults and a 4-month-old baby, collided with a Mitsubishi SUV, with three adults and another 4-month-old child.

The driver of the sedan, a 21-year-old man, suffered lacerations to the face and complained of pain in his chest and ribs, police said. The driver of the SUV, a 20-year-old woman, suffered fractures to her femur and sternum, multiple broken ribs and a bruised lung, according to police. The infants escaped with no serious injuries.

Police said they had ruled out alcohol as a cause of the crash.
