LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Several people were taken to the hospital Thursday afternoon after a serious accident involving three vehicles.
According to a news release from Louisville Metro Police, the crash happened shortly after noon on Hurstbourne Pkwy., near La Grange Rd.
Police say a gold Isuzu Rodeo was southbound on Hurstbourne Pkwy. when the driver apparently lost control of the vehicle due to slick road conditions caused by winter weather.
The car veered into the northbound lanes, according to police and struck an oncoming van with several passengers. That van then slid sideways, and was then struck by a small black car traveling northbound on Hurstbourne Pkwy., police say.
The van contained seven men, six of whom were taken to University Hospital with what appeared to be injuries ranging in degree from moderate to serious. The remaining van occupant was also taken to University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police say.
Two people were inside the Isuzu. Police say both of them were transported to the hospital. One had moderate-to-serious injuries. One had non-life threatening injuries.
The driver of the small black car was not injured.
Hurstbourne Lane is completely shut down -- in both directions -- near La Grange Road as the investigation continues. Police do not have a timetable for when it will re-open.
