Four people were transported to Highland District Hospital following a three-vehicle crash Thursday afternoon in Hoagland at the intersection of Mad River Rd. and U.S. Route 50.

According to Trooper Donald Rack of the Ohio State Highway Patrol Wilmington Post, all three vehicles were westbound on U.S 50 at about 12:45 p.m. when the driver of a Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS attempted to make a legal left turn onto Mad River Road.

At that point, he said, a Subaru SUV that was stopped behind the Monte Carlo was rear-ended by an approaching GMC pickup truck.

He said the pickup truck was unable to stop and in the collision, the Subaru was driven forward into the rear of the Monte Carlo.

Emergency units from both the Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire District and Lynchburg Area Joint Fire & Ambulance District responded, transporting four individuals to the hospital.

Eastbound and westbound traffic on U.S. 50 was blocked for nearly an hour to allow emergency personnel, Highland County sheriff’s deputies and state patrol troopers to secure and ascertain the crash scene.

Rack said the names of the drivers and passengers, and any pending citations, were unknown as the investigation was ongoing.
