Crash Injures Three Children
The Columbia Fire Department initally said two of the children faced life-threatening injuries. Later, the Columbia Police Department updated the statement, saying all three injuries were "fairly minor" and doctors were holding the children overnight for observation.
Police said the red Ford Focus was traveling south on College Avenue, where it was T-boned by a green Honda Civic, turning left from Locust Street. Police also said the third car had no where to go, and struck the other two cars from behind.
The accident closed off College Avenue between Broadway and University for an hour while crews cleared the scene.
