DEERFIELD — A minor accident on the Greenfield Road bridge connecting Deerfield and Greenfield Friday afternoon sent one person to the hospital as a precaution.

The accident happened around 12:30 p.m. Emergency crews could be seen working around three cars stopped in the breakdown lane, facing the Deerfield side of the bridge. Fire officials said the collisions appeared to have happened in a chain reaction.

One person was taken to the hospital as a precaution, and there were slight leaking of vehicle fluids.

South County EMS, Deerfield Fire Department, and Greenfield Fire Department responded to the scene. Police from both towns temporarily closed down one lane, directing single-file traffic around the scene.

No other information was available.
