4 People Injured In 3 Car Crash

A three-car crash on US 70 in Clayton sent multiple people to the hospital Saturday night, including a 10-year-old girl.

It happened near the busy intersection of Town Centre Blvd and US 70 near Walmart just after 8 p.m.

Clayton Police believe a mother driving a white Hyundai Tuscon eastbound on 70 drifted out of her lane, went through the median and into westbound traffic, hitting a black Toyota Camry head-on.

The Clayton Fire Department worked for nearly an hour to cut the driver of the Camry out of his car. Thankfully his injuries were non-life threatening.

The mother and 10-year-old daughter in the Hyundai were taken to the hospital for injuries.

One of those cars also hit a grey Chevy Traverse going westbound, sending it into an embankment and onto the lawn of the McLaurin Funeral Home. The driver of that car was also transported to an ER for injuries.

One lane in each direction of US 70 had to be blocked for more than hour as firefighters worked to cut the roof and door off the Camry and clean up the crash site.
