Two people were injured in a crash that blocked southbound El Camino Real in Belmont for nearly an hour Friday morning, according to police.
A 22-year-old San Mateo man, who was traveling south on El Camino Real in a Honda CRX, struck a Ford Focus driven by a 28-year-old Belmont man around 9:15 a.m., Capt. Patrick Halleran said Friday afternoon.
The Ford was apparently turning left from Anita Avenue on to northbound El Camino Real when the crash occurred, Halleran said.
Both vehicles sustained major damage. The San Mateo man was treated at the scene and released, while the Belmont man was taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, Halleran said.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
Southbound traffic was diverted on to Anita Avenue during the investigation. The road reopened around 10:10 a.m.
