north_platte_patchAn accident at Philip and Cottonwood Wednesday morning sent three people to the hospital.

North Platte Police Department Public Information Officer, Rodney Brown, says that a 16-year-old male was driving a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee when he rear-ended a 1996 Chevy Blazer driven by 54-year-old Samuel Gilmore of North Platte at around 7:45 a.m.

Brown says the drivers were eastbound on Philip and were coming to a stop at a red light. ┬áThe Blazer left the road and stuck a concrete post in the Karl’s parking lot.

Both drivers and a passenger in the Grand Cherokee were taken to Great Plains Regional Medical center and treated for head injuries and lacerations.

Police believe the rising sun played a factor in the crash.
