Six people were hospitalized Saturday after a two-vehicle crash near Constance Bay in Ottawa's rural west end, paramedics say.

The crash happened just before 4 p.m. at the intersection of Constance Bay and Dunrobin roads, Ottawa Fire Services said in a media release.

Three women were taken to The Ottawa Hospital's trauma centre, while three children were taken to the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario, according to the Ottawa Paramedic Service.

All six people suffered "multi-system trauma" in the collision, paramedics said in their own press release.

A seventh person at the scene refused to be transported to hospital.

Dunrobin Road had been closed between Kinburn Side Road and Kilmaurs Side Road, but by 8:25 p.m. it had reopened.
