A three-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 72 Friday evening sent several people to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

It happened about 6 p.m. in the area of Magnolia Funeral Home with two separate collisions, and officers were on the scene for about an hour, said Corinth Police Department Capt. Chuck Hinds.

According to the crash report, an eastbound 2007 Ford Taurus driven by Paula J. Bethany, 68, of Corinth, slowed to make a right turn, and a 2008 Pontiac G6 driven by Nancy T. Roland, 56, of Glen, struck the Ford in the left rear.

The Pontiac traveled a short distance further and stopped. A 2004 Toyota SUV driven by Michelle L. Doran, 42, of Corinth, then struck the rear of the Pontiac with substantial force, and the two vehicles slid about 35 feet from the point of impact.

All three drivers were transported to Magnolia Regional Health Center, said Hinds.

Officer Shane Stegall worked the crash.
