A three-car crash on northbound I-75 Wednesday sent at least two people to the hospital.
“All of a sudden we were hit — I really don’t know what happened,” said Kristin Wooten, of Cincinnati.
She was driving a gray Toyota Scion just before Exit 29 of I-75 when she said the crash happened just before 7 p.m.
She and her son, Zach Wooten, were not injured in the crash. “I just bumped my jaw,” she said.
Both lanes of northbound traffic were halted while the Laurel County Sheriff’s Department and the West Knox Fire Department worked the scene.
After approximately 20 minutes, traffic was allowed to continue through the scene in the emergency lane while the vehicles were cleared from the roadway and median.
The other vehicles in the crash were a Dodge Dart, from Michigan, and a black Dodge Charger, from Texas.
Laurel County Deputy Gilbert Acciardo said no further information would be available at press time.
West Knox Fire Department, London-Laurel EMS and Laurel County Sheriff’s Department deputies responded to the crash.
West Knox Fire Chief Darryl Baker said the two people injured were transported to Baptist Regional Medical Center.
