GLOUCESTER COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — Three people were taken to the hospital Tuesday morning after a crash on Route 17 in Gloucester.

Virginia State Police said the multi-vehicle crash occurred Tuesday morning on Route 17 in the Whitemarsh area of Gloucester County.

Preliminary investigation by police shows a 2006 Saturn Ion was traveling northbound on Route 17 in the left lane around 7 a.m. when it ran into, then crossed, the grassy median.

The Saturn spun out of control and hit a 2003 Toyota Tundra head-on, state police Sgt. Michelle Anaya said. A 2005 Honda Civic then struck the rear of the Tundra.

The Tundra ran off the road to the right and overturned.

All three drivers needed to be extricated from the vehicles. They were all transported to local hospitals.

The crash remains under investigation. Charges are pending.

Photos from the scene showed at least two vehicles with heavy damage, including one flipped on its side.

The crash happened near the Lighthouse Worship Center in the 4300 block of Route 17, according to the Gloucester County Sheriff’s Office. It stopped all southbound traffic and led to major delays. All lanes reopened around 9 a.m.
