Five people are recovering after a crash near downtown early Saturday morning.

The impact was so strong an engine came flying out of one of the cars. Investigators say a BMW and a Dodge collided at Dowling and Polk.

One man was thrown out of the BMW. Three others in it were hurt.

A woman in the Dodge also had to go to a hospital.

Police say it looks like one of the drivers ran a red light. They're checking to see if alcohol was involved.
