According to Sgt., Morgan with DPS 8 people were sent to St. Joseph Hospital after a 3-vehicle wreck.

A total of 11 people were involved in the crash. A 2013 Nissan Pathfinder with four children and two adults on board were traveling on Hwy 79 and in the process of turning left to enter the Franklin Safari when it struck a 2012 Mazda 6 with two people inside. A 2006 GMC Yukon carrying three people avoided the two other vehicles but went off the road and struck a fence line.

All parties except for the people on the Yukon were transported to the hospital.

Hwy 79 was closed during the time of the incident.
