Comments Off

Three people were sent to the hospital on Wednesday following a three-vehicle accident on U.S. Highway 79.

The accident happened just after 4 p.m. about a mile west of State Highway 110, according to Lt. Mike Terry with the Jacksonville Fire Department.

While the cause of the accident is unknown, Lt. Terry said the crash involved a Ford Bronco, small pickup truck and a four-door car.

When officials arrived to the accident scene, one vehicle was in a ditch and the other two were in the middle of the highway.

Three of the four people involved in the crash were taken to the hospital. The extent of their injuries is not known. However, two of them had to be extricated using the Jaws of Life.
