Five pa­tients went to hospi­tal af­ter a two-car crash in down­town Hamil­ton Fri­day.

At about 3:30 p.m. a Toy­ota Yaris and a Hyundai Santa Fe col­lided, flip­ping the Hyundai up­side down on the side­walk, with the bumper of the Toy­ota strewn into the in­ter­sec­tion of Wilson Street and Catharine Street North.

Fathal­lah Fara­jat, a former emer­gency med­i­cal tech­ni­cian in Pales­tine, was on scene shortly af­ter the crash and helped the pa­tients — two men in the Toy­ota and a mother with two young boys in the Hyundai — out of their cars.

“I was wor­ried about a fire,” Fara­jat said. “The boys were up­side down, stuck in their seat­belts.”

The two men — es­ti­mated to be in their early 20s — were sent to hospi­tal, Fara­jat said.

One of the boys was cry­ing as he was stretchered into an am­bu­lance.

Staff Sgt. Frank Mis­cione said none of the in­juries ap­peared to be se­ri­ous.
