The crash injured three occupants from the KIA, including two female adults and one juvenile, and a passenger from the Toyota.
All four patients were treated on scene by firefighter paramedics before being transported by ambulance to area hospitals.
The driver of the Toyota was uninjured and found to have an outstanding warrant for his arrest. He was expected expected to be booked on the warrant and charges of felony evading and driving under the influence.
