Police say that alcohol and speed may have been factors in a 5-vehicle crash that closed a Toledo intersection for several hours on Friday.
Three people were hospitalized following the chain reaction crash at Byrne and Dorr, just after 1 p.m.
Officials say that 22-year-old Brad Rosenburg of Rome, Ohio was traveling northbound on Byrne when his SUV rear-ended 47-year-old Judith Crawford's car.
The impact of that collision sent Crawford's vehicle, which had been stopped at a red light prior to the initial crash, into the back of 64-year-old Harriet Grier's car.
Grier had also stopped at the red light, before the crash, but the impact from Crawford's vehicle sent her car into the intersection.
20-year-old Stephen Feczer was traveling westbound on Dorr when Grier's vehicle then collided with his car.
Following the initial crash, Rosenburg's SUV also collided with 53-year-old Paul Malak's pick up truck.
Malak's truck was also waiting at the light, going northbound, in a lane next to the lane Rosenburg was traveling in.
Police say that Rosenburg was using alcohol and was traveling at a high rate of speed before the accident.
Rosenburg, Crawford and Grier were all taken to Toledo Hospital for treatment.
