    An SUV and a military vehicle collided on Interstate 15 Wednesday morning and one person had to be freed from the SUV by firefighters.

    The North County Fire Protection District tweeted a photo from the scene of the accident, which happened just before 6:30 a.m. on northbound I-15 at Rainbow Valley Boulevard.

    In the photo, it appears a mid-sized SUV collided with the rear end of a military vehicle. The front end of the SUV was mangled in the crash.

    Fire officials said there were four patients -- all from the SUV -- one of whom had to be extricated from the vehicle. North County Fire Protection District public information officer John Choi said one person suffered a serious injury but is expected to survive. The other three people inside the SUV suffered minor injuries.

    All four people were taken to Palomar Medical Center.

    Choi said he wasn't sure how many people were inside the military vehicle but did say nobody in that vehicle was hurt.

    The North County Fire Protection District said 14 firefighters and CHP officers worked the scene of the collision. Motorists were advised to take an alternate route.

    Details of how the crash transpired have not yet been released. No other cars were involved in the collision.
