Crash sends 3 to hospital

November 29, 2010

A late-afternoon crash Monday in Newton sent three people to the hospital.
Two cars collided Monday about 4 p.m. near the intersection of North Main Avenue and East 22nd Street in Newton.
The front end of an Oldsmobile Cutlass collided with the rear of a Ford Windstar van. Newton-Conover Rescue Squad responded to the scene, as well as Newton police and fire departments.
Three people were transported to Catawba Valley Medical Center with minor injuries from the crash, according to the Newton Fire Department. Police didn't release any information about the victims on the scene.
Workers from a tow truck company had to forcefully remove part of the van's rear paneling, which was crumpled against the tire, to allow the van to be towed from the scene.
A Newton Police officer remained on the scene after the crash to direct traffic, which was backed up several blocks from the intersection where the crash occurred.
