At least eight people were taken to local hospitals following a four-vehicle crash Monday afternoon on Fordson Road, according to the Fairfax Fire and Rescue Department.

None of the injuries were life-threatening, the fire department said in a tweet.

The crash happened around 12:30 p.m. in front of the Mount Vernon Plaza shopping center in Hybla Valley. The stretch of road is also behind a busy McDonald’s on Richmond Highway. Images tweeted by the fire department showed a large debris field stretching for more than 100 feet on Fordson Road.

Vehicles involved in the crash appeared to be a Nissan Versa sedan, a full-size pickup truck with major damage to its front end, a Ford Ranger truck and a black sedan. At least two of the vehicles involved ended up off the road — one on the McDonald’s side, one on the shopping center side — but no pedestrians were believed to be injured, a fire department spokesman said.
