COLUMBIA COUNTY, OR (KPTV) - Three people were taken to the hospital after a three-vehicle crash in Columbia County on Monday.

Emergency crews responded to the scene at Bennett Road in the Warren area at around 4:30 p.m.

Police said the driver of a Volkswagen Jetta was attempting to turn onto Highway 30 eastbound from Bennett Road, but went into the path of a westbound Jeep Cherokee.

The driver of the Jeep hit the Volkswagen and lost control. The Jeep then traveled into the oncoming eastbound lane and hit a Kia Rio.

The Jeep rolled several times as a result of the collisions.

The highway was blocked for about 40 minutes and the road fully reopened about an hour after the crash.
