Four people were inside the house at the time. Only two people were taken to UF Health Shands with one in critical condition, GFR said.

Gainesville Police Department investigators have not yet determined the cause of the crash.

Multiple crews were on standby after firefighters received reports about fuel leaking into nearby culverts under one of the wrecked vehicles.

“This was a very challenging call requiring multiple disciplines and close coordination” said Incident Commander, District Chief, Mike Steele.

Both lanes of West University Avenue are blocked as Gainesville Fire Crews advise drivers to avoid this area at this time.
