SPANISH FORK — Four people were taken to a hospital with serious injuries after a crash Wednesday afternoon, according to police.
A semitruck hit a pickup truck near the intersection of U.S. Highway 6 and Center Street at about 2:45 p.m., Spanish Fork Police Lt. Brandon Anderson said.
The semi was heading west on Highway 6 when a pickup truck, heading east, turned left in front of the semi, Anderson said. The semi then hit the pickup, forcing the pickup into a third car that was stopped at the traffic light on Center Street, he said.
Four people were taken to a local hospital with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries, Anderson said.
After the crash, the semi went off the road and into an embankment near some railroad tracks. There was some crash debris that got onto the tracks, so trains were stopped briefly as crews cleaned up the debris, Anderson said.
The railroad tracks run parallel to Highway 6, he said.
No roads were closed as a result of the crash, and all three vehicles involved were towed from the scene, Anderson said.
