Scott Weaver was driving the BMW, with Wendy Weaver and Jones as his passengers.
Three people were trapped in the vehicles after the crash and had to be freed by firefighters, according to Kinzer Fire Company Chief Doug Brubaker.
All six were taken to Lancaster General Hospital for treatment. Jones was flown by Skycare helicopter, while the others were transported by ambulance.
