Three Vehicle Accident on Strawberry Plains Pike
There was a three vehicle accident on Strawberry Plains Pike at Wood Dale Church Road this morning. Several witnesses called in to E-911 at 5:50am to report the wreck. According to witness statements at the scene, a black Ford 4 door sedan pulled out onto Strawberry Plains Pike from Wood Dale Church Road without stopping at the stop sign. It was hit by a Toyota Tacoma traveling East on Straw Plains Pike. The Toyota, which was towing a utility trailer, ran off the road and hit a tree. The black Ford spun out and came to rest in the middle of Straw Plains Pike. A short time later, a Ford Ranger pickup truck towing a boat, traveling East on Straw Plains Pike, struck the black Ford head on. The Ranger went off the road and near the Toyota and struck a different tree. The black Ford was flipped into the air and left the roadway on the opposite side. All three drivers were transported by Rural Metro to UT Hospital, and at this time it appears that these individuals have non-life threatening injuries. There was a passenger in the Ford Ranger that was not transported. Names will be available this afternoon.
