A mother and her four kids were sent to the hospital after two teens were thrown from the SUV Wednesday night in Palmdale.
Witnesses said it was incredible that the teens escaped the crash with minor injuries at 37th Street and Palmdale Boulevard.
One of the cars in the crash spun out and struck a fire hydrant, sending water spraying the area. The other car flipped.
