    Five people were taken to Ryder Trauma Center after a head-on collision on the 79th Street Causeway Thursday, authorities said.

    A two-door Mercedes convertible was heading east on the causeway in the rain when the male driver lost control of the vehicle, jumped the median and struck a pickup truck head-on, Miami Fire Rescue spokesman Lt. Ignatius Carroll said.

    A grandmother, her daughter and two teenagers were in the pickup, he said.

    A nurse stopped to provide aid before paramedics arrived on the scene, Carroll said.
