SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb (KNEP) Shortly after two this afternoon a portion of South Beltline was shut down due to a major crash that sent three to Regional West Medical Center.

Sergeant Eckerberg with the Scottsbluff Police Department tells a reporter with NBC Nebraska the cars involved were a red pick-up truck and a green Toyota sedan.

"The crash occurred when a red pick-up collided with a green sedan. The red pick-up was northbound on Broadway, made a left-hand turn onto Beltline,colliding with a green Toyota - sending both into the eastbound lane. The red pick-up truck then collided with a white truck waiting at the light." explains Sergeant Eckerberg.

The white pick-up had no visible damage and both the drivers and passengers were able to walk away with no known injuries.

Eckerberg states the red pick-up truck was being operated by a male with an unknown age who was sent to Regional West Medical Center.
The driver of the green Toyota, assumed to be bother females, also of ages unknown at this time, were both sent to Regional West Medical Center for the extent of their injuries.

Both the red pick-up and the Toyota were taken away by a tow truck, with severe damage sustained in the front ends.

It is unknown the speed of all the vehicles involved in the collision or the cause.

"It seems to be the case of two vehicles making a turn at the same time and it's one lane" concludes Eckerberg.
