Two people were injured after a rollover crash in Shafter early Saturday morning, according to Shafter Police.

Two cars were involved in a collision near Lerdo Highway and Zerker Road, just west of Highway 99 around 4:40 a.m.

One car rolled over a fence. The driver was extricated and flown to a nearby hospital.

Both drivers were hospitalized for their injuries. The extent of their injuries is unclear.

California Highway Patrol and Kern County Fire also responded to the crash. 

One lane on Lerdo Highway was closed for about an hour and a half while officials investigated. 

Shafter Police say alcohol does not appear to have played a role in the crash. 

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
