No citations have been issued as a result of a head-on collision in Palatine that hospitalized three men Monday night, police said.

Palatine fire officials were called to the scene of the two-vehicle crash at the corner of Palatine and Roselle roads at 6:51 p.m., officials said.

A 2011 Range Rover collided with a tan Buick in the middle of the intersection, said Palatine police Cmdr. Kurt Schroeder, adding that investigators have not yet determined what caused the crash.

A 19-year-old man driving the Range Rover had to be extracted from the vehicle and was taken to St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates, authorities said.

Two men in the second car, including one from Crystal Lake, were taken to Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights, officials said.

All three are suffering from significant injuries, though none are considered life threatening, officials said. As of Tuesday afternoon all three were doing well, Schroeder said.

Officials said it is unclear whether citations will be issued at a later time.
