An accident that resulted in an overturned minivan at the intersection of New Monmouth Road and Route 35 south in Middletown backed up traffic to Kings Highway Friday evening.
Middletown police, fire and emergency service personnel were on scene of the accident, which involved two vehicles.
A minivan had flipped fully onto its hood on the grass in front of the Bank of America building.
The driver in the overturned minivan was conscious and alert when extricated by emergency workers, said Middletown First Aid spokesperson Beth Edwards.
One patient was transported to Riverview Hospital by MONOC medics; two other people were taken to the hospital by First Aid ambulances. No information on patients or their conditions was immediately available, she said.
While the Middletown Fire Police tried to move traffic past the accident scene, two vehicles in the northbound lane became involved in a fender bender, Edwards said.
Responding to the accident were squads from Fairview First Aid, Fairview Rescue, Leonardo Rescue, Station 11 Fire Company, and numerous Middletown Township Police officers.
