Blotter: Three-vehicle crash sends one person to hospital

Roadway construction along northbound Interstate 35E in Corinth on Tuesday night was a factor in a major accident that left one person hospitalized, police said.

Corinth police Lt. Carrie West said the three-vehicle accident occurred near Exit 459 at about 11 p.m.

“Cars had slowed and/or stopped for the construction ahead, and the one driver did not stop,” West said. “That driver hit one car and pushed it into another vehicle.”

One person with unknown injuries was transported to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas via air ambulance, she said.

Police cleared the accident scene at about 12:20 a.m. Wednesday, police said.
