Minor injury in Route 7 accident

A flatbed tow truck prepares to remove a car after a three-car accident Monday afternoon, Feb. 22, along Route 7, near Orem's Lane. One minor injury was reported, but the person, evaluated by EMS, refused transport to the hospital. Police and firefighters also responded to the scene. The accident, which is still under investigation, was caused when one car hit the car in front of it, pushing that car into a third. Southbound raffic was affected as the right lane was tied up briefly.  — Hayden Turek photo
