A two-vehicle crash has left three people injured with serious but non-life threatening injuries last week.
The accident occurred on Farm Road 51 North at the U.S. 380 overpass when a teen driver ran a stop sign. The teen drove his car through the intersection of FR51 and he was T-boned by a woman driving a pickup truck.
According to Chief Rex Hoskins of the Decatur Police, the 17-year old driver was at the wheel along with two passengers, a woman, and a child. All three were taken by air ambulance to an area hospital. Their names have not been released.
The woman driving the pickup truck was not injured in the accident.
Chief Hoskins indicated that he was uncertain as to whether the crash victims had been wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident. The accident is currently under investigation.
