A three-vehicle accident caused seven people to be transported to area hospitals Monday.

The accident happened around 8 a.m. in the 9000 block of U.S. 421-N when vehicles, driven by Amanda Craig of Milton and Kayla Buchanan of Milton, stopped behind a Rumpke garbage truck. Grant Craig of Milton was traveling in the southbound lane when he failed to see the stopped vehicles, causing a rear-end collision, Milton Fire Chief Jason Long said.

Amanda Craig, Buchanan and five passengers were transported to King's Daughters' Health and Baptist Health for their injuries. None of the injuries were considered to be life-threatening, Long said.

Grant Craig was not injured.

The road was closed for about an hour while Milton fire units and emergency crews cleared the scene.
