Five people were hospitalized following a three-vehicle crash in Warren Sunday evening that left a normally busy intersection closed for hours.
The incident took place about 5:15 p.m. at the intersection of Van Dyke Avenue and Chicago Road (13 Mile).
According to Warren police, officers and firefighters were dispatched to the intersection for an injury accident. First responders discovered a total of five people were injured and in need of medical attention. Four of the injured parties had been in the same vehicle.
A preliminary investigation shows a Toyota Camry was headed north on Van Dyke approaching Chicago Road when it allegedly disregarded a traffic signal and struck a Honda traveling east on Chicago at Van Dyke. A third vehicle, a Mazda, was also struck by the impact of the Toyota and Honda.
All of the victims were transported by the e Warren Fire Department to area hospitals. One patient is currently listed in critical condition, police said.
Investigators said oil from the vehicles involved leaked onto the roadway and possibly entered a nearby storm drain.
Warren Police Emergency Management and Hazardous Materials crews arrived to contain the spill, which was described as minor and no threat to the community.
Police Commissioner William Dwyer said authorities are working to determine if drugs, alcohol or distracted  driving were a factor in the crash.
“Our Emergency Management Unit is on scene to ensure the proper clean up and containment of the oil spill so that there is minimal impact to the community,” Dwyer said in a statement.
