Two Crashes on SR 240 Injure Three People

Three people are recovering after two separate crashes in the same location yesterday.

The first happened just before 4PM on State Route 240 in Richland.  A vehicle slowed for a dog in the road, and was rear ended by a second vehicle.  A passenger in the 2nd car was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

About 20 minutes later, a separate two car rear end collision occured.  Two people were hurt in that crash.

Both drivers who were responsible for the crashes were ticketed for speed too fast for conditions.
