Three people sent to the hospital after four car crash
Three people were sent to the hospital Monday just before noon at the intersection of 10th and Fir streets in Medford after a four-car collision occurred.
Authorities say 71-year-old Richard Backes was traveling east on 10th when he failed to stop and rear-ended a Suzuki SUV which subsequently hit a Toyota Corolla and then a GMC pickup.
The injured occupants were in the Suzuki and Toyota. Their conditions are unknown.
Backes was cited for following too closely.
