KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Seven people were taken to the hospital following a four-vehicle accident in Northland.

The wreck happened shortly before 7:30 a.m. Tuesday at the intersection of Northeast Vivion Road and North Highland Avenue, just west of Northgate Middle School.

Of the three adults transported to area hospitals, at least one, a woman, suffered life-threatening injuries. 

Three of the injured were children. Two of those were taken to Children's Mercy Hospital. Another victim, a 15-year-old, went to Truman Medical Center.

The accident involved three SUV's and one car.

Police say a woman driving a red SUV, with an adult passenger and three children inside, was headed east on Vivion Road when she crossed the center line and struck another vehicle.

That crash led to a chain reaction in which two other vehicles became involved in the accident.  The red SUV flipped over on its side.

Police continue to investigate, but they think the woman may have suffered a medical problem.

The woman who is currently in critical condition was not in the red SUV but was in another vehicle.

A 17-year old girl, who was in one of the vehicles involved in the accident, and on her way to school at the time, was not injured enough to be transported to the hospital by ambulance.

She was questioned by police, and then her mother took her to a hospital to be checked out.

As of 9:30 a.m., police continued to have the intersection blocked off for clean up and investigate how the accident happened.

Vivion Road was shut down from North Highland to North Garfield avenues.
