Afternoon Accident Lands Six in Hospital

A section of Highway 259 was closed for almost an hour on Saturday when a Nissan Altima slammed into the back of a Ford Aerostar that had stopped to make a turn. According to Department of Public Safety officials, the driver of the Sedan did not see the van because there was a car in front of him.

None of the passengers were seriously injured, but traffic in both directions had to be rerouted while fire and rescue teams cleared the accident scene.
