A 20-year-old had to be airlifted to hospital.

Five people were injured, one critically, in a three-car crash in Blaine on Thursday evening.

The crash happened at 5:50 p.m. on the 2800 block of 101st Avenue, when a 17-year-old girl lost control of her car and crossed the center median as she traveled east.
