Five people were injured when two vehicles collided at Pacific Highway South and South 336th Street on Thursday night, causing minor injuries to the parties involved.

According to Federal Way police Commander Kurt Schwan, it appears one of the vehicles involved was traveling south on Pacific Highway and collided with a vehicle traveling east on South 336th Street.
