A 15-year-old girl suffered a spinal fracture and a 25-year-old woman suffered blunt force trauma. Both are in critical condition. A 16-year-old girl has a broken femur. 

Police say six people in other vehicles were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. 

As police shut down the intersection, they found a gun inside the Honda.
