KINGS BEACH, Calif. — Three local residents were hospitalized following a head-on collision Tuesday morning near the California-Nevada border on Lake Tahoe’s North Shore.

A Honda CR-V and Toyota T100 collided on Highway 28 in front of Tahoe Inn when one vehicle crossed into the other lane at about 8:25 a.m., California Highway Patrol Officer Brandon Archer said at the scene.

Two males in the Toyota and one female in the Honda — all of Incline Village — had no visible injuries, Archer said, although all complained of pain.

The men were taken to Tahoe Forest Hospital in Truckee, while the woman was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno.
