GREENFIELD — A three-vehicle crash at the intersection of Conway and Silver streets sent three people to the hospital Sunday afternoon with reportedly minor injuries.
Reported at 1:12 p.m., the accident involved a pickup truck, a sedan and a sport utility vehicle.
The SUV, a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee, caused the accident in turning from Conway Street onto Silver Street. The Jeep struck and pushed the sedan, a 2001 Chevrolet Malibu, into a 2014 Ram 2500, according to the Greenfield police log.
The sedan struck the pickup beneath the driver’s side rear passenger area. The pickup was apparently waiting at the stop sign to turn onto Colrain Street.
According to the log, there were minor injuries in each vehicle, with two adults and a minor taken by ambulance to Baystate Franklin Medical Center.
The operator of the Jeep, Sheila Kasky, 71, of Colrain, was given a citation for failure to use care in turning, according to police.
At 6 p.m., a hospital representative said Kasky had been treated and released and George Randal, 62, of Colrain — in the pickup at the time of the accident — was still being evaluated.
The condition of the minor could not be obtained.
