Three people were hospitalized following a rear-end crash on Route 104 late Monday afternoon.
BRIDGEWATER — Three people were hospitalized late Monday afternoon when four vehicles collided as a result of a rear-end crash, police said.
Police and firefighters responded to the area of 1052 Pleasant St. about 4:24 p.m. for a report of a crash with injuries.
Officer Christopher Paze investigated the crash and determined a silver Ford pick-up truck, driven by 29-year-old Brittany Akstin, that had been driving west on Route 104 rear-ended a white Honda minivan.
The minivan, driven by a 54-year-old Bridgewater woman, was "slowing/stopped in an attempt to make a left turn onto Brownfield Drive," Paze wrote in a crash report.
When the minivan was hit from behind, it was pushed into oncoming traffic and side-swiped a black Jeep SUV before crashing head-on into a tan Toyota sedan, the report states.
Akstin was taken by ambulance to Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Two other people in her truck, both Brockton residents, were not injured.
The drivers of the Honda minivan and Toyota sedan, a 56-year-old Abington woman, were both taken by ambulances to Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton with non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the Jeep, a 27-year-old Bridgewater woman who was alone in the vehicle, was not injured.
All four vehicles were towed from the scene.
A deputy with the Plymouth County Bureau of Criminal Investigation responded to photograph the scene.
Akstin was issued a civil citation for following too closely, the report states.
